I cycled through a few different ideas and ended up with this lantern with a blue 'flameless' candle that I got on Amazon (they are not easy to find!), thanks to one of the ladies that posted it here a couple months back. I bundled all of the letters I got from SR and his GF during their time in bootcamp and put them in there. I plan to use it as sort of a shadow box for other things from his time in the Navy as well. I have a photo of SR and his GF next to it and on the other side is the Blue Candle Poem.
I appreciate the timeline & so happy to hear that our sailors even on fleet can keep in touch frequently! Emotional roller coasters are to be expected, I'll hold tight to my faith. :) Thank you for sharing.
KL ⚓️ Feel free to share a blue candle idea or other ideas or ways you are remembering your SR.
That is beautiful Northwoodsmom!
Northwoodsmom, that is stunning. I would like to do something like that. If you ever get a chance would like to see at dusk.
This is what I created.
K - I love it!
K - I love it as well. That picture would make a great Meme /picture to post!! It is beautiful!
K⚓️ -- pretty Navy display. You guys have inspired me to do a special display for my sailor.
Thank you ladies!
Tammy Girl - be sure to post a picture here as well when you get yours done.
