A Day to be Thankful

As you know, today is Veteran's Day, so I wanted to put up a post to thank the Veteran's we know. It is so terribly easy to just take for granted all that we have living in the greatest country on earth (no matter it's current state). The freedoms that we enjoy daily were not easy to attain and to even keep. Did you know that the men who wrote the constitution did so knowing that they were willingly risking their lives, the lives of their families, and all that they had and owned, and some of them lost it all. I think it's only right that we remember and thank the men and women who have served to keep these freedoms, as well as their families. Also, remember those who have lost their lives and their families to preserve our freedoms.

Here are just a few of the veteran's we know and love and want to thank today:

Ken Swedberg (Grandpa)
William Bosch (Grandpa)
Dave Hoffschneider (Grandpa)
Ken Bodin (Father)
Bruce Bodin
Jay Abbott
Gene Abbott
Jack Abbott
Nathan Speer
Jake Hughes

"Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it."---George Bernard Shaw

Thank God for those who are and were not afraid to take responsibility.
There are many more we know and those who we remember. So, just remember all it costs for us to simply write freely on our blogs, to raise your children the way you want to, and to live where you choose. Also, please continue to pray for our country, and for those who defend and lead it.

Thanks also to Carl & Jenny Bodin who have sacrificed each as a soldier and as the spouse of a soldier. I love you both.
