Big hello to Wednesday, November 10th, 2021. Happy 246th Birthday Marine!
Today is a bit of a different post. It is the Marine Corp. birthday also known as Marine Corps Day. Celebration of this day was in July until 1921 when Major General Lejeune issued an order to formalize the tradition. Marines across the globe acknowledge and recognize the 246 years of service to their country. The sacrifices made to defend democracy and the enduring legacy as America’s premier fighting force.
This is the 1st year I ever created a card for my husband for the Marine Birthday. Being a card maker you would think I would make one every year. But I never did and shame on me. This year I decided to go a bit further to celebrate the birthday because I am not sure if Bill will be here for the Marines 247th birthday.
Over the last few months we have had many tests and doctor appointments. After many years of feeling terrible, Bill was ready to get better. Unfortunately, his health has deteriorated so far that there is no turning back. It is heartbreaking. We had plans to change things and to have many more years together. We got thru two different appointments, for two different issues with his health and the results were not good. Yesterday, he decided that he wants all the rest of his appointments cancelled. He will continue to take the medication he is on, but does not want any more tests or medications. He is going to take each day as it comes.
So Happy 246th Birthday Marine. I will stand by you no matter your decision because it is a decision only you can make. Love You!
