"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Oldest Son Update

My oldest son just called from Afghanistan moments ago! All is well and we were able to hear the rest of the story about stitches he needed. Here is my blurb from Facebook which explains everything...

The Rest of the Story as with Paul Harvey...I spoke with oldest son and his episode with the medic and stitches. All is well, except a bungie cord and his lip that had a sudden moment where they connected. Bungie cord fine, son- extra opening near mouth-ugh...but all is well, he sounds great and makes his parents proud every day!


Stay safe sweetie...and we are happy to be able to smile about a tale where you share that you were bleeding all over in Afghanistan and that everything is ok.

Hugs from Dad, Mom and the gang
We Love You!

We're also glad he's OK. Was he doing an imitation of a large mouth bass?

Oh, that's great. Let's hope that's the only injury he sustains in Afghanistan.

Hi Jen,

I don't have anyone I am sending care packages to right now through Soldiers's Angels. I would be happy and proud to be able to send some care packages to your son and his unit. If that is oaky by you, please send me an email with his full name, and mailing address and I'll get something out to him within a couple of weeks at most and then keep em going for the duration of his time in Afghanistan. It would be an honor for me to be able to do this.

All the best,
Glenn B

Humble wife said...

Michelle OC- yes me too:)

Patricia Mathews-That is my prayer, I sometimes am afraid to verbalize it...thank you for doing so.

Humble wife said...

Hiya Glenn! How are you?
It has been awhile, I hope to slow down and swing over. Thank you for this offer, I will email you in a bit with his unit, and the info. Thanks Glenn once again!
