thank you.

Since today marks Veterans Day, I felt it only appropriate to devote today's post to all the service men and women who have dedicated their lives (whether past or present) to our country. It seems so trite, trivial and hardly sufficient to merely say thank you, but it is really all I am able to do.

I honestly cannot imagine selflessly committing my life to both a thankless AND highly dangerous profession. Not only do these individuals willingly put themselves in harm's way, but their families also make a huge sacrifice in allowing them to protect and preserve freedom.

We owe so much to these heroes who have fought and died while serving our country. I know I don't think on it often enough, but I am exceedingly grateful to our veterans. Both my grandfathers served in the army, as well as a couple of my uncles. My sister's husband, Nick, was actually an elite Ranger and I'm so proud of all my family who served in the military.

Happy Veteran's Day to all the veterans and may God be with each member of our armed forces.
