Veteran's Day

I'm taking a moment out of my day to thank God for all the brave men and women who tirelessly serve our country. They make a sacrifice only a small few of us are brave enough to make and our soldiers, veterans and their family's will always have my humble gratitude for giving of themselves so selflessly.

This veteran's day is a rough one. My husbands best friend since middle school (best man in our wedding) is stationed at Ft. Hood, where the shooting took place. He has completed two tours of duty to Iraq, and I am so thankful to God he is safe. He texted us soon after it happened to let us know he was alright, but it was so sad and tragic. My heart goes out to all those who were lost in this war and now, here at home.
