Today in the USA it is Veterans Day. This is a day we honor all the men and woman who have ever served as part of our military. Today we want to personally thank any service member past or present who has put their lives on the line for my family and this country we live in. I have veterans in my family and I am proud of their service.
Today we celebrated by visiting a veteran friend of ours. He is in his 80’s and was in WW-II. He shared with us about some of his experiences after the war and his bond with his “brother” from the war. We helped him cut some wood and he gave us some since we are low. I then went to visit a new mom friend of mine. She has 4 kids and is expecting her 5th. She needed some adult conversation and I entertained the kids some too. She is a sweet soul and I met her in the new church we have been going to for a couple months now. I send out a prayer for any military who are over seas right now or who are about to deploy for safety and strength for their families. Blessing to them and their families. Happy Veterans Day!
