I am so grateful for those who have fought and sacrificed to keep us free. I am also grateful for their families. As I've watched my sister-in-law and all she has done to support her husband as he serves our country, I realize that the sacrifices are not only made by the soldiers themselves. Thank you all!
I have also been thinking about my Grandpa today, who served in the US Army. Love him and miss him so much! One of the finest, funniest men I have ever known. What an influence he has had on me! When I look at who I have become, and the people my children are becoming, I can't help but see his imprint everywhere.

I am grateful for happy moments. Kate is the only one of my 4 brunette children to have inherited my blonde eyebrows. Isaac took it upon himself to correct that Saturday, when he took a makeup pencil to his little sister. Oh, my goodness - I laughed SO hard!
And finally - I am GRATEFUL today for opportunities. Today, Greg is talking to some folks at work about some exciting new opportunities. Also, Ashley found out that she has a callback for a role in the upcoming school musical. Also exciting news! Praying for and wishing them both the best today!
