I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

In Honor of Those Who Have and Are Serving

Today, I would especially like to remember and honor the service of my father in law, US Army MSGT John R. McInnis, Jr. who was killed in the line of duty in Korea.

My father (pictured below) who is still with us, also served in the US Navy as a Naval Aviator. It is men like these that allow us the freedoms we sometimes take so lightly. As we sit enjoying the comforts of home, may we not forget those who are far from home in discomfort.

To all my former students, family and friends who are bravely serving and who have given their life for others, I sincerely offer my THANKS.

May each of you have a blessed Memorial Day, full of memories...
