It's November 11, and I'm Thankful For...

our veterans! (my second thankful post today)
I am so thankful for all the men and who have served and are currently serving our country. These men and women have selflessly given their lives to make sure that we can continue to enjoy freedom in our country. This is one of those areas I think can often be taken for granted. Today, I hope that each of us will reflect on what these men and women have done and are currently doing for us. Think of how much they sacrifice so that we can feel safe.

If you have served, are serving, or have a family member in the military, I THANK YOU for all your sacrifices. I appreciate you so much and am SO thankful for all you have given to our country, to my life, to the life of my boys. Without you, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the freedoms that we have.

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!

What or who are you thankful for today?
