Today I'm remembering my grandad who served our country so bravely... I wish I had known him better. Through his personal writings, I have had a chance to understand him more. (That's why I firmly believe writing your story is so valuable... whether in a blog or in a notebook!) He was a man of great character and conviction who served his country dutifully alongside many self-sacrificing men. For them I am grateful!
I'm remembering my granny, whose birthday is today. Who didn't have a fancy wedding because the man she loved was about to go off to war. Who said this was as close to a wedding photo as they came because the base where they were married would not allow photography. Who I knew well, and miss greatly!
