Veterans Day


What is a Veteran?
A "veteran" - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve - is someone who, at some point in their life, wrote a blank check, made payable to the United States of America, for an amount up to and including their life.

Veterans Day is a good time to thank all of our soldiers. A special thanks to my Dad and my son Andy for their service.

So often these days, I'm stopping by from my cell phone where I find it difficult to comment. However, this morning I wanted to make sure I stopped by and said thank you!

Thank you--to Andy and your father for serving.

And thank you--to YOU for being the loving and trusting mom of a soldier, and an example of what I hope I can be should God ever call my sons to serve.

Hugs
