Thanks to the Veterans.... And Happy Birthday USMC
Well, another week has come and gone! As I think about all I needed to do and how some things I still didn't get to, I also think about some things and moments that I missed out on due to the pace of the days. What did you miss out on this week?
Did you take a moment to think about it? How happy would it have made you or better yet how happy would it have made the other person if you would've been able to share the moment with them?
Today is November 10th which is the 234th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps. Happy Birthday Marines!! Since its beginning in 1775 in a Philadelphia, PA bar named Tun Tavern the Marine Corps service members and their families faithfully continue to make enormous sacrifices for us on a daily basis. Some give everything. Take the opportunity to wish them a happy birthday and let them know you are thankful for all that they do. As a Marine myself, I had the opportunity to participate in this historic celebration annually and to this day I still consider it my Birthday as well. My wife and kids even told me "Happy Birthday" today! So, on behalf of the Thompson family I wish all you Devil Dogs a Happy Birthday and thank you for your service!
Now, November 11th is a holiday too. It's Veterans Day! As we remember all who have served in the armed forces I again encourage you to find a veteran and say thank you. November 11 is a day for us to give thanks and remember all of those who through their selfless service showed they cared about protecting our freedoms and right to pursue happiness. So again, from the bottom of our hearts here in the Thompson house, THANK YOU for your service. We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do without hesitation.
Unfortunately all that we love comes at a price. As I asked you earlier to think about a moment you missed, I now ask you to remember all of the moments that our service members miss. I know that there are some choices in the past that I have made that kept me from participating in "moments" that I will never have the opportunity to experience, share or do over. I missed the birth of my first son (Austin) due to me being deployed overseas. I remember how happy yet how sad I was all at the same time. Every day we have choices to make and there are some we will get wrong. I just hope I get more right! I am sure you do too.
I know there are some things we can't avoid due to our many responsibilities in our daily lives and sometimes there is no way to around it. But as we go around within our daily lives let's do so understanding that others are sacrificing their moments so that we may have the opportunity to experience ours.
Take some time out of your day to remember those who have served and call a veteran you know, write them a thank you, send them a quick email or go up to one and shake their hand and say thank you. Thank you for your sacrifices and giving me the opportunity and the freedom to have my moment.
