This seems like a good thing to share with you all on a Sunday! I was having a bad day Friday….. nothing seemed to be going right…. I found myself fighting tears all morning … so headed to Wal-mart… not sure why…. perhaps I was headed for my favorite brand of Edy’s ice cream (double fudge brownie is oh-so-g00d!) but I ended up not even going in the store!
Outside the store were some of the “dreaded tables”…you all know the ones…they are usually selling something you really don’t need…and whether you buy or not is often determined by whatever mood you are in for the day… but that day the tables were manned by some Army Veterans who were collecting money for Veterans Support Organization.
All the guys were friendly….. not pushing for donations…. and I stopped to talk to them. My bad day evaporated as soon as I looked them in the eye and thanked them for sacrificing and paying for the freedoms that my family and I enjoy…... I stayed and talked to them for awhile and felt much better when I left to head home…..
We need to remember (more often) the brave men and women who have volunteered their lives….sacrificing themselves and their families….. a simple thank you means alot to most… but there are some organizations that are helping in other ways…. and Veterans Support Organization is one of them.
Take/make the time to stop and tell them thanks…and let them know that we do care!
Okay..I am off my soap box now… and will be back on Wednesday with something from outdoor!
