Thankful Remembrance

Remembrance day.

As I sat down to my homemade breakfast this morning I flashed on all the men and woman who are sitting down to KP rations for breakfast - no homemade goodies for them today...

And I thank them all for doing their oh-so difficult job - while I get to stay home and eat free-range eggs, homegrown potatoes, and whole wheat toast with organic butter. Along with a freshly brewed cup of joe.
How much better does it get?

Thank you for remembering those who serve, Mim. We do so often take our liberties for granted, and we have these courageous people to thank for our freedom.
