To Our Veterans and Their Families...

Thank you Grandpa Ingram for your service to our country...I miss you and think of you so often...


For all those who have left home to serve our country and for those who have and are waiting for them to come home...


Hello world
Hope you're listening
Forgive me if I’m young
For speaking out of turn
There’s someone I’ve been missing
I think that they could be
The better half of me
They’re in the wrong place trying to make it right
But I’m tired of justifying
So I say to you...

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
So come home...

I get lost in the beauty
Of everything I see
The world ain’t as half as bad
As they paint it to be
When all the sons, all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Then hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now
But maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
But until then

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
So come home...

Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here

Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
So hear this now

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known,
Ever known

Come home...
Come home...

What a nice tribute to our military.

I also want to tell you how beautiful your kitchen is. I love the cabinets, the color and finish is so rich. Kitchens are so much work and $$$ to redo, plus so many important discisions to make. You have every reason to be thrilled. Have a great week.
