Today, I woke with a sense of gratitude. Gratitude for all of the Veteran’s that have sacrificed so much for me. Without these men and women, I would not be able to sit here and enjoy the laughter of my children while they are getting ready for school, kiss my husband goodbye as he leaves for a job that he loves, or help a young couple find their first home. Think of all the small everyday tasks that we enjoy.
We get to experience these moments because a Veteran fought for our freedom.
I ask you this… Next time you see a Veteran, shake their hand, say thank you, buy them a cup of coffee. A small gesture of kindness is just a drop in the bucket for what they have done for us. With that being said, I think I will make my way to the local donut shop to buy a round of coffee and donuts for the gentlemen that I know hang out there in the morning.
Happy Veteran’s Day to all who have served and fought for our freedom. Thank you!
