Thank You For Serving

Today is "Veteran's Day" and since two of our sons, daughter-in-law, and son-in-law are all veterans, the day holds a special place in our hearts. And here is a story that will warm your heart!

Last week our son-in-law had gone out to lunch with a couple of guys from work and they were all in uniform. While eating their lunch a little girl about four years old, under the watchful eye of her mommy, walked over to their table. She stood there and solemnly recited the "Pledge of Allegiance" word for word! After she was through the guys thanked her and told her what a good job she had done. She looked around at her mommy who said, "Now, what do you say?" She turned back around and looked at them and said, "Thank you for serving!"

Be sure to thank a veteran today!

Sometimes children are our best examples. Such a sweet story! Please extend my gratitude to your children. We owe them and their families so much.
