Happy Thanksgiving!!

It is Thanksgiving day and time to reflect on what we have and what we have to be thankful for. For me I always turn my thoughts to those away from home and loved ones. Those who stand on the front lines protecting me and my family from evil. Those who willingly put themselves in harms way so that I can relax in my warm home and safely break bread with my family and friends on this day.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces who are standing tall for our freedoms. I am also thankful for the men and women in law enforcement across the nation who left their warm home and loving families to patrol our streets and keep us safe.

Each Thanksgiving I set aside a plate in remembrance of those men and women so that I do not forget the sacrifice they have made for me.

God Bless those men and women and God bless America.

That is an excellent idea -- setting an extra plate in honor of others. I love that.

Indeed, what would our lives be without those brave men and women. Great idea to set aside that extra plate!
