Happy Patriots' Day
« on: April 19, 2019, 05:38:54 PM »
Happy Patriots' Day everybody! Completely coincident but I started my journey along the Appleseed Trail exactly 1 yr ago. I had signed myself and my babygirl Maddie up for a Project Appleseed in Manchester TN that was being held on a Friday & Saturday instead of the traditional Wknd Event. I have to admit that this date had no meaning to speak of at the time. But lil did I realize how much it would change me. Sometimes Life has a way of putting you exactly where you need to be at the right time, to hear the right message... maybe it's Divine Providence, maybe it's just Chance and Luck. But none the less it happen.

 You see the "Drive" and the "want" had always been there inside me, but since leaving the Military to come home and raise my baby, I've not had a Vessel to help put that deep down yearning into motion. I've enjoyed this past yr very much along the Trail. Thank you to everyone that's helped and been there, in person, in spirit, and here online, along the way!

May Liberty Increase!

For the Mission :F

It's been a fun year.  Huzzah! Happy Patriots' Day!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

I feel the same way since I left the military. Purpose, direction and motivation can be powerful as well as fulfilling. Looking forward to working with you again in Manchester  :snipersmi
