My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Wednesday Hero

Lt. John Madea
Lt. John Madea
U.S. Navy

Lt. John Madea holds his daughter as she is baptized with holy water from the ship's bell of the amphibious dock landing ship USS Tortuga (LSD 46). This is the fourth person baptized aboard Tortuga since the ship's christening in 1988, and her name will be inscribed inside the bell as a tradition of the U.S. Navy.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

Sarah,

A wonderful tradition. Thanks for sharing.

To answer your question about the little island...it is too small for anyone to live there. LOL I just want my own little paradise.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Mary

Such a neat thing to say you had done, even if she obviously never remembers it. That's what pictures are for I guess!

How sad that she will never know her daddy. This photo is a treasure.

P.S. I mention word verification in my FF post for tomorrow. Yours is the non-annoying kind. Can you tell me how it is set up in your settings? I'm curious.
