Happy Thanksgiving!!

I want to thank you all for supporting the Blog.

This is my favourite time of the year when family from far comes to town for a one time special Week-End.

Let's all pray for the ones not as fortunate as we are..

The ones with no shelter... click the picture to enlarge...

The ones with challenges like the amazing Cody... you are a true inspiration Cody!

The ones who won't have the chance to be among families today...

The ones we would love to have around but left us too soon...

This is the funeral of Private Kevin Elliott who was killed during a battle with the Taliban in Afghanistan. The ceremony was held in Dundee, Scotland. His best friend Barry Delaney wore a green dress to honor a long time agreement that if one of them dies, the other has to wear a bright green dress to the funeral.
Barry said:

“Kev was like my brother – we would have done anything for each other.
We said that whoever died first, the other one had to wear a pink dress with green spots to the funeral – and we shook on it. It was mainly his idea and the more I think about it, I’m sure Kevin knew something was going to happen.
I looked for the exact dress but couldn’t find one anywhere.
I eventually picked up the green one in Primark and bought the pink pop socks to make it look even sillier. It’s what Kev would have wanted.
Kev told his whole family about the pact, so I couldn’t back out. I had a word with him at the graveside and asked if he liked the color – I’m sure I could hear laughter coming out of the ground.
Kev was a true hero and someone I’m proud to call my best mate.”

God Bless you All!!
