To all of the men and women who protect this country and our freedom, I thank you with every beat of my heart.
Thank you for being our eyes and ears while we sleep and our hands to feed the hungry when we are unable.
Thank you for protecting our skies so we may once again feel safe to fly with our families.
Thank you for raising toys for the less fortunate so they, too, can have a gift to open Christmas morning.
I know war is a touchy subject and not many want to write about it on their blog...I don't want to share my feelings about war but I do want to share my feelings for our military men and women. Too often people take advantage of their freedom, never thanking those who have sacrificed their lives so they can go to their favorite trendy coffee shops or hang out at the fancy dance clubs...never giving it a thought that, without our troops, their freedom could be stripped away in a heartbeat.
November 27th, 1990, I married a United States Marine *OO-RAH*. Three days later he left (orders...compliments of the Corp) to Desert Storm. I am proud to be a Marine's wife (once a Marine, always a Marine) and I am thankful for my husband and all the other men and women for their efforts to protect us.
