As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

If you want to thank a soldier, be the kind of American worth fighting for.

It’s Sunday once again and time to pause and give thanks for all the blessings this week has brought.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day so I’m thankful for all the men and women that hae served our country and gave their lives to defend us.

I’m thankful that although we’ve had some crazy weather here, today has turned brighter and warmer, I’m going to be able to gather with my daughter and some of our family for a cookout tomorrow..

Another week has passed and with that all my family remains healthy and happy.  I can’t be any more thankful if I tried.  Things are fast looking up and the worst now seems to be behind us.  More and more people are starting to go out and do more and more is opening up that had been closed for the last year.

My daughter had to cancel the birthday party for her son on Saturday due to the inclement weather we’ve experienced, but thankfully she is able o reschule it for a future date. It’s wonderful that I live close enough to some of my family that I can celebrate with them instead of sending cards out in the mail.

I’m thankful to be living in the home of the free and the land of the brave where it is once again safe to gather with friends and family, as more of us are getting vaccinated.  We are so privileged to have plenty of shots available to so many Americans.  Our health services and providers can’t be beat. Thankful too that we can share some of that abundance with others .

The willingness of Ameraicas veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
