some gave all.

inspiration: Memorial Day

i didn't really grow up around the military, so i can't ever fully know what it's like or even what to expect. i know a few people who are in the military; but again, i couldn't imagine walking a day in their shoes. i can only imagine the pain and hardships of families who don't get to see their loved ones, or fathers, or mothers, or sons, or daughters for months at a time. and i grieve for those who have lost loved ones in war.

and today is definitely a day to honor those who have fought for our freedom and who sacrificed it all. i am so greatly appreciative of the troops here and abroad who sacrifice something every single day so that i can enjoy my freedom and liberty in this great country.

some sacrificed it all to fight for this country. leaving behind families, spouses, children...and i am so thankful for those men and women who put others before themselves, sacrificing a lot for us.

i am so thankful and appreciative of every man and woman who choose to serve our country. =]

and in honor of those who have fallen:
Happy Memorial Day
