Have you ever stopped and wondered how a U.S. soldier feels when serving his/her country over the holidays in a foreign country?
I could probably create a rather long list, but instead I want to take a moment to show my gratitude! I have never served in the U.S. Military, but I have family and friends that did and or are serving today. This has weighed heavily on my mind lately.
For everyday that I wake up and enjoy my warm coffee in the comfort of my home…
Our service men/women may not have went to sleep and if they did, their comfort was compromised.
While I earn a living in a safe environment…
They proudly and honorably risk their lives daily to earn a buck.
I can hug, talk and be a part of my loved ones daily lives…
They hold tight to pictures and letters and occasional phone calls.
While I have so much more comparison that I could do; I simply want to remind everyone of all our Heroes. This holiday season, please express your thanks by sending cards and letters to our U.S. Military.
Since I am a newbie to the world of blogging, I am sharing my Life Passions for starters.
My family is my entire world and without them, life would not have meaning. My family consists of my husband and 5 beautiful children. I have a rather LARGE family, but I like it that way. Never a dull moment that’s for sure. If I had a quarter for every special moment we have shared I would be a millionaire. In fact, being a mother has taught me most of my life lessons. Growth appears every day. Learning from each other is our foundation of love. We don’t always agree but we always leave a little room for compromise. Watching my children grow emotionally, physically and educationally has set my life in full motion with gear switching at a moments notice. I would not change any aspect of my family, they are perfect just the way they are!
In my opinion, success is more than making a dollar or two. Loving what you do is the key ingredient. The intentions and heart behind the earned dollar(s) is what makes you or breaks you. Every day that I wake up, I thank God for the path he has already planned. If I have not been able to touch someone else’s life in a positive way, then my day was not productive. Simply sharing a smile and a kind word can do wonders. Where I started is not where I want to end. I set goals and make plans each day, small and large. My building blocks for success are simple, yet ever-changing as the world changes, including doses of wisdom. To sum it up, earning a dollar and living your dream at the same time is my success.
