Veteran's Day

Today is a day easy to overlook for some people.  But we must never forget the people who have fought for our country.  My husband served with the Marines and then after we were married he also served in the Army.  He served during Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom.  I am so proud of him and the legacy he is leaving our children.  It is really neat to see the girls developing pride in this too.  The Genius during her musical got to sing some patriotic songs and she was smiling at her Daddy the whole time.  When the vets in the audience had to stand up, she proudly pointed out her Daddy.  Last night before bed she made sure to lay out a red, white and blue outfit for Veteran's day.  She said it is extra special because "daddy is a two-time vet, the Marines and Army."  So, thank you Cliff for your service and loving your country and family enough to serve.  Thank you to my Grandpa, my uncles, my husband's step-father and all of our friends and family who have served.  And a thank you as well to the family members of those serving, because you are sacrificing too.
