November 11th, was a good day.
Veterans Day is the one day a year set aside to pay tribute to all who have served our nation. For so many of us, the military is a part of us...we don't need a day off work to remind us what our service members mean to our nation. We live it.
Now, don't get me wrong...I am truly grateful that Veterans Day is a holiday. My blog is alive, because I have the need to share with all who are willing to read...the importance of recognizing the men and women who protect our freedoms. I am ever so grateful for the freedom to show respect to the generations of soldiers, who have made our country so great and strong!
Fortunately, many had Veterans Day off. I did not. I had to work. But....I loved being at work. You see, I had the pleasure and honor of writing my story on our company's E-Mail, which is distributed to each and every customer who frequents our store. When I arrived at the shop in the morning, I had no idea this would be one of my tasks! The owner of the company was so kind to feature my words, in honor of Veterans Day. It means so very much to me, to know the people I work with have respect for our military. On the afternoons I leave early for BWI to welcome home troops, they've covered my back at the shop. When my sons are coming home for a few days to visit, they've covered my back at the shop. It's the 'mom and pop shop' mentality which our nation was built on. Taking care of each other, and taking care of our soldiers.
So to Dave, the owner of the finest Garden Market in the state of Maryland...thank you for supporting our troops. I've attached a few photos of our shop...and we call this work?
