Remembering to Say Thanks

Posted By Jessica Fisher On May 30, 2011 @ 1:42 am In Parenting and Family | 1 Comment

I live in a city that has played a large part in US Military history [4]. San Diego is home to naval and marine servicemen and women.

Americans who serve our country shop in my Walmart, eat in the same restaurants that I do, travel the same streets. And yet, they become part of the landscape, just like everyone else standing in line in Walmart, at Chick-Fil-A, in traffic. And I confess, I forget.

I forget that they risk their lives for our country. I forget the sacrifices that their families make for a greater good. I forget that their lives are not completely their own due to deployments and other change of orders.

And I’m thankful for Memorial Day to remind me

To Be Thankful.

Thank you, to you and to your family for sacrificing for my family and our country. God bless you!
