I wasn't going to post anything for Veterans Day. Didn't really have anything to add, plus as you may know, my better half wears combat boots, so it feels a little close to home.
But as we enjoyed an outing to the aquarium, I couldn't help but think of the moms, dads, brothers, sisters, etc. who are at war. They have to miss this sort of thing. And that--on top of the perils of serving in the military in combat--is really hard.
So as you enjoy your day, like me, I hope you'll join me in giving a little mental nod to those military members. Imagine what it would be like to miss that birthday, Christmas, whatever. And enjoy yours a little extra, for them.
