The meaning of the Alstroemeria is devotion and loyalty.
“Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love.” ~Morihei Ueshiba
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Marine Corp Marathon – 2016
Finishers in the Hand Crank Division – 26.2 miles
My 17-year-old ran the marathon on October 30th. As a very proud mama I will tell you his time was 3:23:56. He was 4th in his division and 484th over all out of approximately 30,000 runners. The runners/walkers you see to the left of the frame are participants in the 10K race.
The sites we saw, the incredible dedication and endurance was awe-inspiring. We were moved to tears more than once and left the event feeling overwhelmed with the sacrifices so many men and women make for our country. Sacrifices, that are so often taken for granted.
