Thank you to those who have served

Take just a moment or two to thank others!

I am looking forward to a day of rest, frankly.  Yes, I am going to roast some chicken for hubby and cook up fresh green beans and corn on the cob, but that is not a long haul for me.  Cooking and eating, for that matter, are just a part of everyday life.

Otherwise, I am going to finish a collection of short stories, “One Last Dram before Midnight” by Denzil Meyrick, write a short blog or two and enjoy this divine Southern summer we are having.

Health issues have begun to sneak into our usual routines. Multiple doctor visits monthly, sometimes weekly, have become more common than we like.  Nonetheless, we feel fortunate in our family for the good life we have had and continue to enjoy.

One benefit we have, at least at the moment, is TriCare, the military health benefit enjoyed by many who served and their families. So I take this personal moment to thank my husband of just over 49 years for his 20 years of service in the United States Army.


I think you not only for the personal benefits our family enjoys, but I thank you also for the health and strength our country has enjoyed at least since World War II.  You and others secured this prosperous, idealistic, and welcoming country of ours. May it long survive.
