It is Sunday, my favorite day...and time for alittle gratitude.
Some weeks it may seem like a small thing and other weeks it may be a biggie. But big or small ... I am thankful.
It is Veteran's Day... for some it means a long well deserved weekend, a break from studies at school or the 9 to 5 work grind. Also it is a weekend filled with incredible sales that lure us into the stores. Or if we are lucky enough it is a weekend filled with delightful weather that lets us get outside before that blast of old man winter arrives.
But in our hustle and bustle, let us not forget our veterans. These are the men and women that fought for our country so we may enjoy our freedoms. My father~in~law fought in the "big one"...World War II, my father fought in the Korean War and my husband in the Vietnam War. Each generation helped to protect our homeland. Today several of my son's friends find themselves in Afghanistan. One of his friends was on the first plane out after the bombing in New York on 9/11...another just left for Afghanistan to continue the fight.
I want to pause and thank each one for their service to our dear country.
For the men and women in our military...I am thankful.
Until next time...
