Posted in Blog, Family, Life, thank you

I am happy, I am thankful. I am thankful, I am happy.

Thanksgiving is over Christmas is in full force. I know they start Christmas sales early, but again it feels as though people were not in the mood. I had dinner at home with family.  Then went afterward,  to family house where they were all preparing for dinner also. There seems to be very little talk of Christmas sales, or the exciting that day coming up in four weeks.

It just a feeling but I think everyone has all they need at the moment, which made the meals better.  That at great feeling to have everything you need.  See how easy it is to be happy and thankful.  I know everyone wants it all and no matter how great the meal is there is no replacement for the heart desires. Like I would have love to be further along on website and my book editing. Some people that did not make it, I would have loved it if they had come. Even though I did not want to go out and fight the crowds as I have over the years, I have to admit money is an issued with me just like everyone else.

It seems like I am whining, and the major holidays have just begun. It’s that priority thing again. Make room for every part of your like can be hard. There should be some good times just like the bad ones.

Think about what is your greatest joy of the holiday? Did you know you don’t have to go all out to enjoy it?  Remember the movie, “Miracle on 34th Street.”  Your present may just be enough to make someone’s day.

Thank you for having my back.

Have you ever wondered who will take care of you, when you need it the most? Remember the movie, An Officer and Gentlemen, Apocalypse, Platoon, Jarhead, Strike, how about Full Metal Jacket. Seeing the training, the life as a solider and then what is expected through a movie, can give you a considerable respect. The thoughts that someone is covering you, and they don’t even know who you are can give you the greatest respect. A person, who signs up, unafraid and unselfish of protect an entire country, stranger.

It takes a stronger faith to say, I am willing to die the people in my country.
I just want to say, Thank you for your service, we are honoring you on Veteran’s Day.
