Saturday we spent time with family which included one of our very own military who has already done two tours in Iraq. He is now home with his family, including a two year old baby girl and lovely wife. It was our honor to spend our day with this precious family, eating, sharing, and simply just enjoying our freedom. What a huge thing we take for granted, and with the way things are turning in our own government it is so crucial to take advantage of each freedom we have. I wont go off on that tangent on such a special day as this. My brother was in the army for a w hile, and so was stepdad. My father was in the Navy. I have a cousin whose husband was in the Navy as well. THERE IS LOTS to be thankful for ~ and I am honored to live in such a place and time as I do now.
It was nice doing all of our "celebrating" ahead of time so that now today, we can just simply relax and enjoy some grilled burgers. (YUM!). I may do some stuffed jalapenos too ~ those are so good the next day with eggs!
Have a blessed day, and please. In the very least, say a prayer for all of our military here and abroad. THEY covet our prayers!!
