Spreading Love and Thanks To Our Military Troops! Happy Thanksgiving

Reblogger Don Rogers
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield

Midori Miller has put into words something that is never out of style.  We have men and women serving all over the world in our military service.  Some of them will not be able to spend this holiday season at home with their families, so when you see one of them tell them thank you.  Let them know that you appreciate what they are doing.

Giving Thanks...

There is something to be said when I can go to my home and feel safe..very safe..or I can drive a car..and work where I want...I can openly express my views..I can make as little money or as much money as I want...and I don't have to worry about being imprisoned for saying the wrong thing.  Because the U.S. military..protects me!

I'm not about war..I would rather everyone live in peace and harmony..but I am a realist..and still regardless of my personal feelings about war.... I'm thankful for our U.S. military.

I don't always agree with our government..and I can see beyond enemy lines..I'm safe...I'm FREE and so very thankful...thankful for those that fight for us everyday!

If I see a soldier...I cry and am so overwhelmed with a a wide variety of reasons..it just comes out of me...I can't control it....because I'm grateful.... I cry for appreciation...for their sacrifices..and the gratitude I feel for my FREEDOM! 

Soldiers sometimes fear..when its all over and time to go home..how the public will accept them...how they will be able to just have an ordinary life..but most of all will their friends and families love them and understand the new person they have become?

Sometimes..they need to be reminded..of why they fight..why they don't sleep or eat for days on end..and why they volunteer to be away from their loved ones.. Funny thing about the troops...they don't need to think twice....

They have a job to do!

So do we!

So tonight while you are giving thanks..remember those that serve our country.  Remember those that will be missed at a Thanksgiving Day gathering.

If you are privileged enough to share Thanksgiving Dinner with a soldier tonight...please give them a special message from me..Midori Miller thanks you and loves you..oh and don't forget kiss them on the cheek..because if there was a soldier close to me....I admit... that is exactly what I would do!

That's right ladies and gentlemen...I invite you to a reblog celebration!  Happy Thanksgiving Friends and enjoy this very special day!

Cristal,

I had the same experience. Our men and women in uniform need to know that we support them and have not abandoned them, they do so much to keep us free. I hope that you and your family had a GREAT Thanksgiving.
