Honoring our Soldiers

This isn't food related but I couldn't let today pass without saying something. Today is Veteran's Day and it is a day for us to all take the time to remember our soldiers, past and present, and to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

I am so thankful to all of the brave service men and women who serve our country. I am grateful to those who are willing to sacrifice so much so that we can live our lives and so that we can enjoy all the freedoms that come with being an American.

I am extremely proud to be an ARMY wife. I am so proud of my husband and there are no words to express how grateful I am for all he does for our country and our family. I miss him more than I can say, but I know that he is doing a job that he loves and that our country needs him.

I also wanted to say thank you to those who have given their lives in defense of our great nation. I pray for the families who are grieving and for those who are missing a friend or loved one.

So, please take a moment to think of those who have served and who are still serving.

God Bless our troops and God Bless America!

What a great post! We should never forget how much our military does and did to protect the freedom we enjoy. Please thank your husband for the wonderful work he does and thank you for being a supportive wife to him!

Beautiful tribute -- and thank you for all that YOU do, too, as the wife of a soldier.

November 11 always makes me cry. I'm thankful for the reminder that 'Freedom is not free' - but the heavy price is worth it. Thanks.
