HAPPY VETERANS DAY

I have not posted in awhile.  Where does the time go?  It seems like I meet myself coming and going and it seems work gets in the way.  I am trying to clean out and get rid of a lot of STUFF and that is what it is, is just stuff.  I don't like clutter and it is beginning to bother me how much stuff that I do have.


Back to the title of my post.  November 11 is Veterans day and each and everyone of our veterans, and those in active duty, need to be remembered for what they have done for our country and what they continue to do.  Those at Fort Hood need to be remembered for what they went through last Friday.  I pray that those that survived will make a complete and full recovery and the families of those that lost loved ones will find comfort.


The service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan need remembering.  Everyday each of their lives is in great danger.  These soldiers get bad press at times, but they keep on giving. 


The company I work for is putting together Christmas boxes for all of the military individuals that have family members working here.  I think that is so great.  We get so many letters of thanks for doing this.  These individuals are all so appreciative.


If it were not for our service men and women, we would have no freedoms at all in our great country.  If any of you are reading this, keep up the good work and we are so proud of you.


I don't have any pictures to share today, but please say a short prayer for our military, for the safety of those who serve and thank them if you see them.


Blessings
Maxine

This is a wonderful tribute.

Ask at the post office about the flat rate boxes for military mailings. They are cheaper.
