Firefighter’s Prayer

Fire EngineOur village has a very small Memorial Day Parade every year that consists of our 3 veterans, the marching band, and the firefighters. It doesn’t take long for the whole presession but we do take the day t to honor and recognize those who’ve served our country. 

Memorial Day Parade I was waiting in the park to take photos of my son riding in the fire truck when I received a text message from him saying he’d been picked to recite the Fireman’s Prayer. I started to panic thinking I wasn’t standing in the right place to capture the whole thing but luckily I was right where I was supposed to be.  

Firefighters PrayerI don’t have to tell you what a proud mama I was listening to my son speak, he’s such a dedicated fireman and outstanding citizen wise beyond his 21 years. It takes a very special person to do the job he does and I beam with pride when I see what a wonderful man he’s become. 

Fire Engine Thank you all for letting me toot my horn just a little bit and share with you a wonderful day with my firefighter.

      Melissa thank you, I did shed a few tears but try and hold back. I cry at the drop of a hat anyway so my family is always holding their breath waiting for it to happen.

    Congrats Dawn. I know it takes a special person to be a firefighter. So happy your son has found that calling. You should be so proud. When most are running from danger they are running in to help others. That takes a special person. Your handsome son will have a lifetime of wonderful moments in his career. My hubby who you know is a firefighter says he has never worked a day in his career. He says it is a calling not a job. So I know your son will do so well to serve your sweet community. Congrats on him getting to read the prayer.
