Happy 4th of July!

Diane shared this "Star Bright" quilt with us which will be a “Quilt of Valor” for her son and will be presented to him soon.  Diane shares: "He was badly wounded in the war in Iraq. He took a direct hit from a rocket propelled grenade which blew off his lower left leg.  Even with this injury he went on to become a police officer.   We know we were lucky to get him back and are thankful for every day we have with him."    Thank you Diane for sharing, and thank you to your son and all of the men and women who have and are serving and sacrificing for us, our freedoms, and our country.  Let's all take the time and make the effort today to personally thank our service men and women.   May God bless each of us.  Happy Birthday America!

  1. Happy 4th of July, Celebration of our Freedom to our favorite Barn Chicks and all the wonderful service men and women, past and present. We are truly blessed. Thank you for sharing Diane's quilt and story. Courage is the word that Diane's story brings to my mind.
