Happy Veterans Day

For about the past 3-4 months I have felt promptings to tell our soldiers "Thank you for all you do." A simple phrase. I could even shorten it to just "thank you." But I have the hardest time doing that. Being in Dallas Fort Worth airport four times in the past three months on a layover to Puerto Vallarta, would have made that very simple task possible as there are many soldiers in and out of that airport. So when I was there in September, I made a conscious effort that any soldier I walked past I would thank. Even though we had long lay-overs both times the opportunity didn't arise. Today I was out for a walk and three marines walked past me, and all I could muster up was, "Happy Veterans Day." I have no idea why it's so hard for me to say such a simple phrase. For all they do and all they're giving up, they each deserved for me to say a lot more than Thank you, or Happy Veterans Day! For now, it is through this blog that I salute each of you who have served this country, "Thank you, thank you thank you!"
