Veteran's Day

Day 11:  I am thankful for all those who serve in the Armed Forces.  The sacrifice they make for me and for the people of the world is incredible.  I cannot even fathom what they do on a day to day basis to make life as we know it go on in existence.  With that said, I am going to shift gears and thank their families.  It must be incredibly hard to let a loved on go off to battle and not know if s/he will even make it back.  It must be incredibly difficult to go hours, days, weeks, or months without knowing what s/he is doing, if s/he is healthy, sick, safe.  It must be incredibly difficult for the spouse left at home to be both mom and dad to one, two, or even more children for long periods of time-years even.  It's hard enough being a parent with your spouse, let alone do it by yourself.  It must be agonizing at times to take care of a wounded soldier who has lost limbs, mental capacities, or other injuries which require so much time, effort and money. So, I thank all those spouses, parents, and siblings who also sacrifice for our country.  Our men and women of the Armed Forces are blessed to have you and so are we!
