20 Years… Reflection & Rememberance 🙏🏻 #neverforget

Its been 20 year since that horrific day!

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

BUT – We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

#neverforget!

I remember that day and i remember this timeline. It was a day we can never forget!

Its been 20 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 19 now, working and going to school. Many of his peers don’t know much about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today, they will be on ALL day! Talk about what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to kids and we owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! Lets reflect on the bravery of our first responders and say prayers for all the lives lost 🙏🏻 #neverforget !

We need to pull together again! Like we pulled together on 9/12! We rallied together, and we were stronger than we could have imagined! Prayers for our country and our countrymen today! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

Late nights slow down an early morning 😊 but this morning was perfect! A slow easy rain 🌧 was falling until around 8:30 and now it’s clear and cool. Perfect for the last big dust up of Summer ⛅️ Every year we talk about doing something different for Labor Day Weekend , but we always end up at the river 🚤

It all starts with a good breakfast 🍳

“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”

Have a Happy Labor Day! 🇺🇸

Sorry, We’re Closed | Happy Labor Day Weekend! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yes, the headlines are true… We are closed until Tuesday in observance of Labor Day. Did you know that the Labor Day holiday goes all the way back to the 1800’s?! Pretty cool 😎 I don’t know about you, but my crew has earned a long weekend! Their hard work, along with many others out there, is what makes our country great!

The whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio wants to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Labor Day Weekend! The Nursery will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday in observance of the Holiday!

Thanks to my all my people for their hard work and dedication! ❤️

And God Bless the American Worker! 💪🏼 🇺🇸

“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Sunday Reflections…

I’ve been up since early… Drinking coffee and thinking 🤔 Reflecting. Yesterday was a fun, long, laidback day. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in grand fashion… At the river 😊 Floating, fishing, photography – Fun. The only thing I can complain about is we ran out of hours in the day, and the mosquitoes were out in force last night🦟

Yesterday was a busy, wonderful day! A beautiful sunrise, fun on the river, great food, a beautiful sunset on the water, live music at the marina & a gorgeous Full moon 🌕

We want to thank everyone who called, messaged and texted to wish us a Happy Anniversary! ❤️ It was a fun, laid back, perfect day.

“Mosquito is out,
it’s the end of the day;
she’s humming and hunting
her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger
arrives on such wings
at sundown? I guess
it’s the nature of things.”

~ N. M. Boedecker

Happy Memorial Day! 🇺🇸 God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Today is a Holy Day! 🙏🏻 Memorial Day is a day of respect and remembrance for those true hero’s that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms!

Thank you to all the men and women who gave ALL, so that we could live and enjoy all our freedoms! Tell your kids and grandkids what this day stands for! God Bless America 💥

The tumult and the shouting dies;

Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
   An humble and a contrite heart.

Lest we forget—lest we forget!

Sunday Reflections…

Last night was Cold 🥶 42 degrees with a brisk northerly wind 🌬 It sure didn’t feel like the official entry to Summer… But, this morning, the brilliant Sunrise helped mediate that feeling. Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day to honor and remember all the men and women who gave all for this country. Maybe this unusual cold is a reminder of that? We were all huddled by the fire 🔥 last night. How many soldiers huddled by fires, dreaming of home, family and cool Summer nights that never returned… I can stand a cool night by a fire just fine when I think about that… God Bless America 🇺🇸

Sunrise is always a welcome thing 🌞


“Somewhere out there today,
In a land far, far away,
A soldier rides patrol,
Knowing not what may unfold.

He keeps watch as he rides
Over dangerous countryside.
Roadside bomb could be hit.
Scary, but this soldier doesn’t quit.

Think about Mom and Dad,
About the good times had,
State-side, how long here?
Back to watching, a little fear.

This was a good day
To think and to pray.
Strange that prayer is so right
When there could be a fire fight.

Wheel back into base.
Tomorrow, another ride to face.
Convoys done for the day.
Looks like rain’s on its way.

Nerve wracking job but boring too,
But that’s what soldiers do.
So many over here, none alike,
Who have gladly joined this fight.

Freedom has a high cost.
Lives given, the ultimate loss.
That cost they willingly give
So freedom can continue to live.

So, we remember today
All those who went away-
And gave their lives that we
Might live here and stay free.

God Bless America!”

~ Dr. Bill McDonald

Happy Memorial Day 🇺🇸
