Last year at this time, my daughter Madi and I were traveling through an airport that was a hub for the military. Men and women dressed in camo lined the wall waiting for their plane to depart. I had started doign something new in my life just prior to this encounter.
Each time I see a solider in uniform, I say “thank you”. Two small words. Often, I feel very uncomfortable. Often, they don’t know what to say back. But when I am done, I feel great for showing my thanks and I think it makes them feel good too! I challenge you to begin being grateful for those who sacrifice to profect what we have in America. Don’t just feel grateful; show it too!
This is just one way that we can show our children how to be grateful and in a very small way give back to those who give so much!
