Gratitude has been a reoccurring theme for me lately. I don’t know if its the beauty of fall or just feeling blessed for all of life’s’ gifts. I am in a state of gratitude.

I am grateful for many things health, family, friends and freedom. I am grateful for all those who sacrifice so that we can have freedom. I am grateful for our soldiers.


My uncle has the difficult task of being a military chaplain and greets these soldiers once they return home. My sister-in-law has the equally difficult task of waiting for the man she loves to return from his post in Iraq.

This is not a non-profit but something that matters.  Our troops matter, lets all be grateful for those that give so much.
