Relocate to Wisconsin : May 2016

Gratitude is Easy, Their Service Was Hard..Say Thank YOU !

  You may have seen this before...I have blogged it before...and the tears still fall and my chin still quivers. More than many other weekends, we remember this weekend, the people who have given their lives, the families that have made the sacrifices that come with having someothank you 1ne in the service of our country. It takes a few seconds to make eye contact...and mine are often blurred with thankful tears as I sweep my hand outward from my heart and

catch the eye of the marine, army soldier, navy seaman in the center...wherever they hand from heartmay is because of where they have been.

     Say it to every service person you know...a sweep of your hand from heart to them....a gesture they will appreciate...easy for you to do...for everything they have done for you ....for all of us , every day.

     This is the link to the video here if it doesn't bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye...sowelcome daddymething is amiss. 

    Don't let it be the "thank you" you wished you had said...let it be the one you are glad you gave.

   Amen and Women.
