Today I’m thankful for profound and simple freedoms that have been secured and ensured by our veterans and support personnel…
… because even just a simple freedom – like being able to enjoy my friend’s cell pic of her lone rider – isn’t free.
Not free at all.
This lone rider hopped up after my friend dismounted. No doubt he used his kitty sensibilities to determine the warmest spot in the barn was where the warmth of her horse radiated up through her pre-warmed leather saddle.
Here’s to thankfulness for warm spots that have been sacrificed for and defended by people willing to endure cold spots, tight spots, remote spots, lonely spots, secret spots, hot spots, feared spots, unpopular spots…
Thank a vet on any day. Teach your children likewise.
My mama did.
Encourage one another.
