Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us,
and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.
for health, for love and friendship all around, for two little boys with eyes of blue, for His faith that I am capable of raising them, for song and for laughter, for plentiful meals and plentiful blankets, for education and love of books, for online-shopping, for kindness received and kindness I might show, for Mr. J’s willingness to do dishes, for old fashioned values, for trials that discover strength, for country and for sacrifice. I give my thanks for all this and more.
may your travels be safe
may your holiday be memorable
may you feel gratitude on this truly American day
