Today is veteran’s day….I am thinking about holiday shopping, baking, Christmas lists, family time, my husband’s new business…so many things on a pretty normal Monday morning. Except, it’s not a normal Monday morning, it’s Veteran’s Day. I am big supporter of all branches of the military. I, like many others, had grandparents in WWII. I was enlisted in the ARMY, but due to a serious accident, I was disqualified without ever serving a day. I support Operation Shower in any way that I can. My words of thanks to the fine men and women in uniform will never be enough!
I have had the honor and pleasure to attend two Operation Shower showers and each time, I was blessed to meet some of the most selfless families who humbly thanked me for my time. THEY THANKED ME??! Truly, I set up a few tables and made a few things look pretty, I handed out gifts that were donated by wonderful companies that also support our military families…I did nothing, these families sacrifice so much.
Operation Shower has created this heartwarming video…grab a tissue.
“They’re expecting a child while their spouse is away from home, serving our country. See how one organization shows these moms they are not alone in a most awesome way!
I happily support Operation Shower and share their showers in each issue of EPM, I would be honored if you shared this video, and helped bring more awareness to their amazing cause!
As JFK wisely said, “As we express out gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
