~ the True Thanksgiving ~

Do you appreciate waking up in your own bed, 
to the sounds of birds chirping, clean air & freedom?
Do you enjoy eating a warm breakfast in the comfort of your own clean home 
after waking from that comfortable bed?
then choosing what clothing to wear, how to style your hair, 
... plan your day without fear of constraint or punishment?
or flipping through tv channels, 
marrying your beloved of your choice, 
EVERYDAY being able to choose a direction you'd like your own path to go? 
aren't these such seemingly insignificant rights that we have?
foolishly and forgetfully taking them for granted every single minute ~

Do you relish the long walks you take in the woods,
being able to work for yourself, get in your car and go where you want for whatever you want?

Have you ever thought to yourself
what it would be like living in another country?
...not having the freedom to express yourself,
your religious beliefs, your creative spirit...

Thank a Veteran for all of this...
This Veteran's Day, I would like to Thank those
that have stood for our Country on familiar and foreign soil,
placing themselves in danger for our freedom,
... with the BRAVE thought of not knowing if they would be coming back home.
Thank you for  fighting to allow our daughter
to grow up in a Country
that has such Diverse & Rich history,
and an even more Promising & Bright future...
I would like to Thank the families of loved ones who are serving or have served ~
 sacrificing memories and sometimes lives 
 so that we may continue to enjoy our own. 
Thank You.

Blessings from the Farm
