A little change. & Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.

I don't normally take pics of myself....it's just a lil journey I am going thru at this stage of my life.  Joining Weight Watchers (down almost 1lb this week) total of just about 5lbs. since I joined 2 weeks ago.

When we are young...we take so much for granted...oh youth where did you go?  I don't go there too much but sometimes when we look in the mirror we don't recognize that person staring back at us ....but it's all good....it's suppose to be this way.  Honestly, I just want to be "proactive" with being as healthy as I can...get in reasonable shape...take care of me.... be the best Karen I can be...so I can be a blessing to my family...friends......community.

My friend of 22 years, has always cut my hair love how she creates....this pic does not due this pixie cut justice....I love it.  I wore the "pixie" in the 60's when I was 6years old maybe you did as well. :)....had short hair in my late 30's grew it out some.....wanted to go short again.  My hair is fine...it's not gorgeous full thick hair...(like my girls).  So I decided to cut my hair... and rock it short.

So it's the long Memorial Day weekend.  I am so thankful for our brave men and woman who have served this country for decades.  We have an amazing country, and we must keep our faith in God and pray for our America.  Thank you to my son who served in the Marines...he is out now.  Thank you soldiers...thank you, thank you.  Thank you military families!  I will be working on my yard this weekend....enjoying visiting friends....but my heart is remembering those who served (serving).. fought, died and pondering the real meaning of this weekend.

God bless our soldiers.  God bless America.

I like your short hair. It looks very refreshing and easy to care for. I have always said if bald ever is "in" I'll be the first on board. lol My hair is fine as well and seems to be only good for getting in my eyes and making my face itch. Consequently I'm mostly a hat person. My daughter in law cuts my hair and did an angled bob, which I love, but it's time for another.
Memorial Day has our family remembering my sons friend, Sgt McMann especially. He and my son were stationed in Baghdad at the beginning of the war. They had spent 12 months over there and were in Kuwait with plans to finally return to their families. The first plane with some of them was on it's way back to Germany when they were actually called back to Baghdad to spend another 3 months!! That was the beginning of the 15 month Army tours. Sgt McMann was on that plane. They returned to Kuwait and were making their way back up to Baghdad when they were ambushed in Falujah. He was killed. It was their first casualty in the whole time over there. 2 more were killed on the way back after the 15 months were actually over. Very sad. He left a wife and 3 children. Praise God our son made it home safely.

Nancy, I can not imagine...well kind of when our son was on a ship over in the Middle East it was an awful feeling at first...I'm sure you felt that too, but then I had to trust the Lord with our son. So sorry for Sgt. McMann's family. I thank them from my heart. Blessings, Karen
