Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,

Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
“Thanks for what you’re doing;
To keep us safe in the USA!”

This poem is such a good reminder that we should be thanking our  troops everyday and not only on Memorial Day.  I am so guilty of this.  For now on, I will encourage my children and myself to always make a point to just say thank you.

It’s kinda like when someone sends you a card when it’s not your b-day.  It’s such a blessing.  Or maybe when your dh sends you flowers “just because”, oh wait that was when we were dating.  LOL!

Enjoy your day with family and friends.  May you feel peace knowing that you will see your loved one again soon if you are in mourning.
