Gratitude is Easy, Their Service Was Hard..Say Thank YOU !

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

  You may have seen this before...I have blogged it before...and the tears still fall and my chin still quivers. More than many other weekends, we remember this weekend, the people who have given their lives, the families that have made the sacrifices that come with having someothank you 1ne in the service of our country. It takes a few seconds to make eye contact...and mine are often blurred with thankful tears as I sweep my hand outward from my heart and

catch the eye of the marine, army soldier, navy seaman in the center...wherever they hand from heartmay is because of where they have been.

     Say it to every service person you know...a sweep of your hand from heart to them....a gesture they will appreciate...easy for you to do...for everything they have done for you ....for all of us , every day.

     This is the link to the video here if it doesn't bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye...sowelcome daddymething is amiss. 

    Don't let it be the "thank you" you wished you had said...let it be the one you are glad you gave.

   Amen and Women.

It used to be an honor to serve in the military service. Since Vietnam War it became a poorman choice to find opportunities. With all volunteer army I am not sure the super rich and affluent are part of it.....

We all need to keep our service people in mind. Day in and day out regardless of it being Memorial Day.

Great post! I think we often get swept up in the whole celebration part and forget that Memorial Day is about those who gave their lives in service to this country. And congratulations on your big  milestone!

Sally & David,

That is a wonderful idea.  It will certainly mean a lot to them and it may also make their day, not to mention let them know they are appreciated.

Hope you don't mind that I just hit the share button above for Facebook.  Saying thanks to our service men and women is an everyday need to do, but especially on Holidays such as this.  Thanks for writing this blog.

The fact that you can get up, go anywhere and enjoy yourself because the ability to do so was PRE-PAID by people you don't even know. They treated you to this. Is there anything else to say but thank you? Yes. Live that thank you!
