    Taking a Stand

    Post  Admin on Thu 23 Oct 2014, 7:33 pm

    I ask you to stand with me
    For both the injured and the lost
    I ask you to keep count with me
    Of all the wars and what they cost
    I ask you to be silent with me
    Quietly grateful for our lot
    As I expect you're as thankful as me
    For the health and life we've got
    I ask that you wish them well with me
    All those still risking their all
    And I ask that you remember with me
    The names of those that fall
    I expect that you are proud like me
    Of this great nation of ours too
    So enjoying all its freedoms like me
    Support those upholding them for you
    I hope that you are hopeful like me
    That we'll soon bring an end to wars
    So you'll have to stand no more with me
    And mourning families no different from yours
    'Til then be thankful you can stand with me
    Thinking of those who now cannot
    For standing here today with me
    At least we show they're not forgot

    Tsk, all these men in my life and not one of them bought me one.

    Even my estranged husband bought his new woman one!  In the 31 years I was with him, he only ever bought me real flowers three times.  Once when I went away on a course before we were married, and twice when our first daughter was born ........ Yep, he'd forgotten he bought me the first bouquet because he was so pissed at the time  Rolling Eyes

    not on valantines day though cos that is rubbish, should not need a special day for that.

    That's lovely Campo. she's a lucky lady.  

    It's not rocket science, expensive or hard to think of is it, so why do so many men fail in this department?
