Friday Confessional - Veterans Day

I confess . . .
I didn't come up with it but this is how I feel today:
Only Two Defining Forces Have Ever Died For You : Jesus Christ And The American Soldier – 
One Died For Your Soul And The Other Died For Your Freedom.

I confess . . . 
I want to thank ALL who have served in ANY branch of our military.
and Future.

I confess . . .
Days like today are hard for Tommy.
He doesn't know that I know.
But I do and it makes it hard for me too.

I confess . . .
I love my life, the way things have turned out.
This is what God had planned for us.
But sometimes I wish, for Tommy, things had been different with the Navy.

I confess . . .
Sometimes I secretly wish he would go back.
Because I know he wants to.
And I would be ok with that, as long as he was happy.

I confess . . .
I know he is happy with the way things are now.
But being a Sailor was his lifelong dream.
Its sad that it didn't work out.

I confess . . .
Even though we have an awesome life.
Its hard not to imagine 

I confess . . .
I truly am thankful for every veteran in my life.
I should show it more often than I do.
We all should.

Happy Veterans Day!


  1. nick tried to go into the army and it didn't work out. There are times when I look back and think what if...

  2. You should be thankful that you are sensitive to his feelings! I think that is great!

  3. My husband was set up to join the Army, but then he got a job so he ended up cancelling and not going to boot camp. I am thankful every day for that. If he had gone into the Army, it's likely that we never would have met. That's why you should never have regrets-- the events of your past get you to where you are today!
