My better half and oldest son are now home and I couldn’t be happier. My 4-year-old and 7-year-old were literally jumping for joy at their homecoming. And now that they are home, our family once again feels complete.
They were only gone for a little over a week, but it felt like an eternity. The feeling was mutual which made us both take a moment to appreciate the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.
I can’t imagine the uncertainty, the courage, the strength, the loneliness, the stress or the magnitude of the burden that these families face for so long.
So on behalf of Veteran’s Day, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to those people who make our freedom possible.
