Spent a nice day off, relaxing, enjoying the sun, eating. I find myself in the quiet now, thinking about our soldiers. I think about my grandparents who moved away from home to work in a shipyard, my great-uncle who worked in Alaska with the Army Corps of Engineers to build the highway, the other great-uncle who fought in Europe and my Grampy who served in the Philippines. I think of the friends who have served in the Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and the Army. I see all the Facebook posts and blog posts of others sharing their gratitude and pictures and I thank the Lord for them, for the ones who do the hard but necessary work to defend freedom. I don’t know that we can really do enough to repay the favor.
