Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving

A couple of very profound holidays fall in November, Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was first and is a holiday to give thanks for all we have.  And we have so very much. A land where you can get almost whatever you want. A land with opportunities to excel and achieve your dreams, if you're willing to put in the time and sweat.  A land where we can worship as we like...or choose not to.

And Veteran's Day. A day to honor those men and women who serve our country and community selflessly;  army, navy, air force, marines, coast guard, police, fire, etc.  They give of themselves so that we can be safe and free.  Free to continue to do what we need and want to do.  They give us even more reasons to be thankful. Hopefully we all can take a few moments to thank a veteran, not just today, but every day.

We all have so much to be thankful for.
