I wanted to take a moment today to express my appreciation for all those that have served in the armed forces!  Words cannot properly convey my gratitude for you.  I am so grateful to live in this nation and thank my Heavenly Father that there are people like you out there, ready to protect and defend my family and I!  You are brave and courageous, and indeed, heroic.  I admire all of you for all you’ve given in behalf of this great nation!  And, truly some have given the ultimate sacrifice, and I honor them. 

While in the midst of this election year, I think many have lost focus on what is truly important.  And, while many of us have differing view points, we must remember that were it not for those who have fought, and sometimes died, for us, we wouldn’t have the freedoms we have to express our views.  So, for this time, let’s put those differences aside, and honor all those who have given so much, so that we don’t have to. 

Thank you! 

 

Because I think often times music can convey feelings that I’m not able to, here’s some great songs to honor those in the military: 

American Soldier- by Toby Keith; Some Gave All- by Billy Ray Cyrus; Brothers- by Dean Brody; Letters From Home- by John Michael Montgomery; 50,000 Names- by George JonesWhere The Stars And Stripes And The Eagle Fly; 8th of November- by Big and Rich; Welcome Home- by Dolly Parton; Arlington- by Trace Atkins; God Bless the USA- by Lee Greenwood

Please remember how blessed we are, because of these amazing men and women.  Let us never forget our veterans.  Honor them.  Love them.  Thank them.

Questions

So, I found in my garage a book I had when I was younger called The Book of Questions, by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.  I remember that I used to sit with my mom and step-dad and we would pick questions out of here, and discuss them.  It almost always led to a great conversation and we had a fun time.  So, I thought it might be fun to put some of them up here, and see what people have to say. 

We’ll start with a fun one.hammock

If you could take a one-month trip anywhere in the world and money were not a consideration, where would you go and what would you do?
