Good Morning from my, now illuminated, little corner of the planet.
It's Sunday morning as I type this. It's just me & the girlies today since hubby went to DC to meet up with some old Marine Corps buddies for the Marine Corps birthday and Veteran's Day.
I was doing so good on my little happy train letting go of all the ick & then this flippin' Hurricane / Super Storm whatever the hell it was Sandy came along and kicked my state in the face, right along with my happy, peppy mood.
I'm such an incredibly spoiled brat sometimes and I really needed perspective. Our home was not damaged in the storm. Yes, we were without power for a good long while and it sucked, but some of my friends, only a few miles away are, still without power! Other friends down the shore & in New York lost their homes. People I don't even know lost their lives.
I have a HUGE amount of respect to all of the individuals and families who give themselves over to defend this amazing country of ours.
Don't just let this day pass without saying thanking a veteran. No matter how you may feel about this or any other war, the fact is that they put themselves on the line for YOU.
To all the Veterans & their families - THANK YOU!
God Bless you all and God Bless the USA!
American Girls and American Guys
We'll always stand up and salute
We'll always recognize
When we see Old Glory Flying
There's a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night
When we lay down our head"
