freedom is not free

countless men and women have died while in service to the United States armed forces. freedom is not free and they paid a dear price for mine. I honor their memory and their sacrifice. #thankyou

thankful heart, happy heart

So many people talk about being thankful, but sometimes truly being thankful is difficult. I’ve found that thinking on the simplest things that you have, but can’t imagine doing without, is a good way to start toward the path of thankfulness.

happy kennsday indeed

THANK YOU to all of my Facebook friends who have wished me happy birthday today. I am overwhelmed at the literal hundreds of thoughts, greetings, and well wishes.
