giving thanks | day eleven



today, November 11th, 2010, on Veteran's Day, I am thankful for every single person who has, or is, currently serving in our military. so thank you to all who have paid the ultimate price. thank you to those who have spent months away from their families to serve for their country. thank you to those who have missed holidays and birthdays because you were out there keeping us safe. thank you to those who are still fighting at the front line for complete strangers. I am beyond honored to have several Vets in my family, including my late grandfather and every one of his sons (my uncles). 

we take so much for granted these days, including our freedom, which wouldn't be possible if it weren't for those of you out there willing to sacrifice everything for our country. 
and for that, I'm thankful.

Happy Veteran's Day! 

eta: I scheduled this to post last Thursday, but I guess Blogger decided to be a See You Next Tuesday and not do it. so it's late. insert sad trombone.
