Veterans Day


most people are glad they have Veterans Day "off"
do they really know what the holiday means?

We live in a society that "celebrates" some holidays
for the wrong reasons

I get so upset with my kids when
they want HUGE gifts for the grands
because they say 
"that is what Christmas is about"
UM NO it ISNT

it is about the birth of Christ
and the gift giving started 
like the wise men bearing gifts
for the Christ child
it was NOT to see who
bought the most expensive gift etc

anyway, I digress...........

VETERANS DAY
is 
to 
THANK
our 
Veterans
for serving
so 
that 
we 
could
have
our
freedom

if you see a Veteran today
THANK HIM
 buy him a coffee
do something special for him
to let him know how much we appreciate what 
sacrifices he has made
FOR US
I love the quilts of valor for
awarding them with a comfortable quilt
to say thanks!

some of us KNOW Veterans-
listen to his stories of war
AGAIN
it wont hurt to let him
tell about his experiences.

you may LEARN something
like how much some people sacrificed
with their lives
or part of their lives
some when they came home
were never the same
lost limbs
Post traumatic stress syndrome
agent orange
all kinds of things
 THE LEAST we can do
is LISTEN
and take care of our Veterans

thanks and God Bless!

  1. How did we get so far from the true meaning of many holiday? They were to honor and respect.
