The Anzacs

Today we remember those who lost their lives in the defence of our nation. Anzac Day was First observed on April 25 in 1916 and was to remember those who had perished at Gallipoli. As time has gone on we have included others who lost their lives in different battles and different wars. There was a time in the 1970's when the day was not very popular, but theses days there are many well attended dawn services held around the country. The traditional Anzac day march becomes more and more popular each year too. So today I am thinking about those who died whilst defending our country. Those who served but didn't die and had to live with the memories of war, and those who were left at home whose lives were changed forever by war. And I have been "loving the house". (Cleaning)

I'll leave you with a photo of some tissue paper flowers I made yesterday in preparation for a class I taught at Young Womens (church youth group) last night. We made dozens of flowers (for a set) which turned out wonderfully!
