Special Day



Today is Veterans Day and I would like to take a second and thank all those who have fought for 'the things we have'.
Our freedom means everything and I cannot express how thankful I am for all those who have fought for that freedom.
I especially would like to thank my Grandpa Jones.
He is such a great man and I wish they lived closer so we can see them more often.
I know he has worked really hard in his life and I love and appreciate all he has done.
This is a little shout out to ya, Grandpa!
Love you lots!

this is so cute! what a great post girl. i think it's important to remember, especially when everyone seems to be talking more about the date itself then the importance of it.

I love the four of you on that picture. I don't have a grandpa anymore but my husband does and I so appreciate all he has done and the example he is to my life. Have a great weekend my friend!
