Thankful Day 11: Veterans Day

Today’s thankful post is easy. I am thankful for everyone who has served our country in the armed forces. I am proud to count so many people in my life as veterans – both my grandfathers, my step-grandfather, my grandmother, my father, and my best friend are all veterans, and my husband is about to start his 13th year as active duty Navy.

Thank you for your selflessness, thank you for your sacrifices, thank you for your commitment, thank you for your bravery.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.

    Somewhere there’s a picture of my grandpa (now deceased too) in his Navy uniform. I love it. So classic and handsome. i need to ask my grandma for a copy. i still remember asking him when i was little about all his tattoos and him telling me about getting them when he was in the Navy because everyone else was getting them. it was a pretty funny conversation. I’m thankful for all the veterans too today!
