May is a Month for Being Thankful

Real Estate Agent with New Home Star

Many of us don't really look at our calendars as often as we should. There are many holidays in May that tend to get overlooked by many of us.


Saturday, May 19, 2012 was Armed Forces Day.  It is easy to get swept up in the day-to-day minutia of life. Weekends are crazy times filled with work, errands, family and chores. We often don't stop to think about those are currently serving in the military or those that have served in the past unless something  happens to grab our attention or we have family that is, or was, in the military. We must remember that their job is not an easy one and it is even harder for their spouses and children. I would like to thank each and every member of our Armed Forces, both Active Duty and Retired for serving our country. I would also like to thank their families for their support and their dedication to keeping our country safe.


Monday, May 21, 2012 is National Waiters and Waitresses day. What better way to celebrate than to take a Veteran or Active Duty soldier to lunch? Don't forget to tip your Waiter or Waitress. Even leaving a little note of thanks if your service is exceptional will go a long way toward making their day a great one.

With these holidays in mind, I hope you have a fabulous and joy-filled day!
