Stopped Me in My Tracks... Cards for Heros and...

Where Have all the Flowers Gone???

Ok friends... I am sitting here, checking out all the blogs involved in the Cards for Heros Bloghop...And let me tell you! It's the who's who of the Card Making World!!!! OH my gosh.. It is such a gorgeous array of talent, inspiration and respect for our troops!

Before I tell you what stopped me in my tracks I want to share with you the gal that started it all.

Sandy Allnock.

I know this gal! I've been to her place and I have seen her Cards for Heroes setup/office/shipping center/boxes/etc! It was over a year ago, before 'she went big'!!

Sandy, you Rock! The blog hop starts here: The Cards for Heros Blog Hop...

And, I got 'stopped in my tracks' right here... Where Have all the Flowers Gone.

A song, from my youth! And, now that I am older, wiser, and more aware.. I finally 'get it'.

Go check it all out.

And join me.. in making cards this weekend (be sure to read about what they need!), and sending them to Sandy.

And, Thank You to all of the families and service men and women who are and have made so many sacrifices on our behalf! We are so lucky to have you!!!!!

It has been a very different journey through all these peoples lives and the very thought that we can do this with the click of a mouse is so amazing.

I am going to go back and listen to Where Have All The Flowers Gone and reflect.
