The tumult and the shouting dies;

Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
   An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

~ Rudyard Kipling

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

Carters Nursery Is Closed In Observance Of Memorial Day

I have received a few calls and messages asking if we are open today, we are not… We are closed today and Monday for Memorial Day. Have a great weekend! And remember, This weekend we honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. “All gave some. Some gave all”.

Remember
Someone’s child, left long ago,
A strange land,
Someone’s foe.
An unmarked grave, fields of green,
Resting quiet,
Just eighteen.
Winds of freedom, wash us now,
Remember him,
This I vow

~ Victor C. Kleinschmit

Have a safe and Happy holiday!

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

I was thinking about my dad just now… What would I have done without him? What would my son have done without me? Dads are one of, if not THE most important figure in a boys life! Thank God for Dad! 

I was always hanging around my Dad, even at the Fire station. He taught me how to be a man. Now I have a son of my own. With my Dads help ❤️ He has turned out well too 😊



“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”

Happy Fathers Day to all the ‘Dads’ out there…

Have a GREAT Fathers Day! I’m going to lunch with my dad and my son to celebrate 🎉  


PS: Enjoy the socks and ties 😉

D-Day’s 75th Anniversary | God Bless America

The Normandy landing operations took place on this date, on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

The determination & bravery of the men that took those beaches was unparalleled! Their victory laid the foundation that won the war.

I grew up on my granddads stories of the war & I always remembered Omaha Beach, the beach where he and his group landed. ‘Omaha Red’ he called it, he said the blood that was spilled there gave it that name – So much blood that the beach, the water, everything was Red!

This is one of the only pictures I have of my grandfather in uniform (center standing with his hand on his rifle sling). This was from a unit photo before they deployed. He made it through the war and back home. A highly decorated hero. A great man & role model.

June 6th is also a special day for my Mom 😊 It’s Her Birthday 🎂 My grandad always said he knew exactly where he was on that day in 1944…

Its been 75 years & we are still reaping the benefits from these men & women’s sacrifices. I thank God for our freedom & for the work & sacrifice that it took to make it so. We can never forget that Freedom isn’t Free!

God Bless America!

Ps: If you are lucky enough to still have a WW2 veteran around you, go see them today & hug their neck and thank them for their service.
