I hiked for 2 1/2 hours in Zions National Park yesterday with my daughter-in-law, Becky. We had an absolutely perfect day! The weather was just right, and the sky was blue. We didn't even need sweaters! We ate in the Zions Lodge while looking out of their huge glass windows at the autumn leaves slowing floating to the ground. It was wonderful therapy to be with someone that I truly love while enjoying such majestic scenery and peace. My sense of calm and gratitude for such a breath-takingly beautiful place is still with me today. It felt warm and fuzzy and wonderful!
Yesterday I was thinking about how grateful I am for living in this free country as I got ready to go to Zions. I wore my blue tee shirt with the big American flag on it! All day I was feeling thankful for the many freedoms we enjoy and for those who have sacrificed to to preserve those freedoms.
Veteran's Day is a special time to be especially grateful for those who have gone above and beyond with their service to this great country. I feel a deep sense of gratitude to all Veterans including my own family members. I THANK YOU! I am also deeply grateful to those who are currently serving. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
