Today, my thankfulness cannot be expressed in words alone. My thankfulness comes deep down from in my heart.
The men and women who have fought for our country have sacrificed way more than I could ever imagine. The leave their homes, their families, their friends, and essentially their lives to go off and fight to keep us free.
Not only am I thankful for those that have made the ultimate sacrifice of dedicated themselves to our country, but I am thankful for their families. I have never had to experience this first hand, and I knew from the very beginning that I could never be a military wife. It is safe to admit that I am not strong enough to deal with the worry and stress that comes from that experience.
I am lucky to say, though, that I have many Veterans in my family. My Paw retired from the Air Force. I have cousins, uncles, and plenty of friends who have fought for my freedom.
Thank you for everything.
And if you didn’t tell a Veteran thank you today, please do it before the day is up. They deserve it.
