On this day that is meant for remembering, I'm going to remember to be thankful. To be thankful that my husband made it thru war safe and sound. To remember that when he came home, he walked off his plane and into my arms.
I am going to remember and be thankful, that while my kids miss daddy while he's away, he's always come home.
I am going to remember that for so many other families their sacrifice has been far greater then I can imagine.
For those who never returned home in the way they should have, who left widows and never met babies, for mom's who's hearts break over the loss of their grown up little ones, for dad's who shoulder the grief of losing a child who was following in their footsteps..... for all the Soldiers, Airman, Marines, and Sailors who have lost their lives in the pursuit of freedom, for that I remember and I am thankful.
Today and everyday.
