This week I am grateful for~
Our Soldiers, Their Families, and Our Freedom!
This past Monday, Memorial Day, I spent some time reading Ambers blog and saw this photo of a soldier and child. It got my wheels turning, as I reflected on my brother in laws two tours of duty in Iraq, the struggles his family had to endure, and the price of freedom that has been paid and will be paid.
Can you imagine if I lived in another country? Just last week, I was angry with Tony, and called him a nasty name. (Don't worry my friends, I won't reveal what it was)Not too classy I know,and something I am working on(I know, I know, I have alot I am working on, but hey-I AM working on it!)Anyhow what if I lived somewhere like the middle east? I think with my temper, and my mouth I probably would be stoned to death before the sun set on my first night there. I live in a country where I can exercise my free agency. The good, the bad and the ugly. I am blessed to live in a country that is free, and I owe it to the ones that have sacrificed of themselves to give that right to me! For that I am truly grateful!
So this is for all the soldiers past and present and their families who support them~
THANK YOU~THANK YOU~THANK YOU!!!!
