LEST WE FORGET................................

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

I don't normally get too personal here on my scrap blog, but today is a special day and I am wearing green - everything green I can find...
It is Wear Green to show support for Premature babies and families. For those of you who do not know, Mia my eldest daughter who is now 10years old was born severely prem weighing 740gms, it was an extremely rough time for both of us and she nearly went to heaven quite a few times. We are blessed to have her - so from small beginnings she is now a healthy 24 kilos - I know you are thinking wow she is 10 and so light it has been a great milestone to reach the 24 kilos I assure you!
Mia has gone to school with green tank top under her school uniform, and a green ribbon tied to her school bag.

thanks for listening xx
