Tomorrow our country honors those who have served or are currently serving in our military.
It is our chance, once a year, to say "thank you" to those who have given us the freedom to worship, pray publicly, read our Bibles, homeschool our kids, have our kids in private school, work whatever job we want, go to college wherever we want, adopt children from other countries, etc.
Our military work hard each day. They are seldom thanked. They and their families make HUGE sacrifices daily. We were always a flag-waving family, thankful for our military, but little did we really understand about the sacrifices, until we became a military mom and dad. Now we have a speck better understanding as to the sacrifices those serving make/have made.
Tomorrow we will be participating in our town's Veteran's Day parade. I wanted to publicly invite you and your family to whatever celebration your town has. We have stood holding signs that say, "THANK YOU FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY" and many veterans passing have started to cry. Many have never felt honored by our country. Tomorrow I will proudly march holding our son's picture with my fellow Blue-Star Moms.
So here's an idea - Tomorrow is a great day to load up your kids, even the little ones and tell them the stories of those who have fought or currently fight for our freedoms. Tell them about the spouses left at home while their loved ones are away. Tell them about the thousands of kids just like them that wait for daddy or mommy to come home.
And to all you military families - our family here honors you and thanks you!! You guys rock!! We pray that God protects your loved ones and that He protects you. That He meets every need you have and that you feel loved and appreciated by your fellow citizens because you are all our heroes!!
May GOD Bless America....
FREEDOM ISN'T FREE
