Happy Veterans Day!

Today in the USA is Veterans Day. As I watched some TV today there were lots of programs and shows honoring veterans. But as I watched them it struck me how they seemed to skim over the real “honoring” part. Some shows did a great job, while others said a short thank you and moved on.

I want to try to make up a little for where our culture falls short on really appreciating the men and women who sacrifice so our country can maintain its freedoms. These men and women sacrifice their time, family life, sleep, safety, happiness, comforts, and even their lives for the rest of us who live in the USA. You aren’t appreciated enough and are often taken for granted, but… I want to say a big THANK YOU … MY FAMILY APPERCIATES YOU… YOU ARE OUR HEROS… and so much more to those of you who have ever served in the military in any capacity and for those of you who currently serve THANK YOU and you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and your families 🙂

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. Flags

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!
