yesterday was remembrance day.
a day to honor our veterans
a day to say thank you 
a day to remember
a day that i view with a very different perspective now that my son is a soldier.

last january, taylor joined the canadian armed forces.

today, is my first remembrance day as a "military" mother. if it wasn't for lyme and company, taylor would've completed boot camp this fall. and just like the young soldier who marched beside him today, he too could be shipping out to afghanistan tomorrow.

i can't imagine.
i really can't.
it scares me
i am so proud of this young man. this soldier who is my son.

remembrance day should be a part of every day, don't you think?
