This week our country celebrates Veteran’s Day to honor and remember the soldiers who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom. My dad is a retired lieutenant colonel from the Air Force, and my father-in-law served in the Marines. So this day reminds our family to pause and thank them for their courage and commitment. We have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to our dads, and this is yet one more reason we can add to the list. Their service has made a difference to the lives of so many.
I’d like to share this suggestion…as you’re getting into the spirit of Thanksgiving, thinking of all of the things you’re grateful for, and maybe even decorating your house with a cornucopia of abundance, consider adding one thing to your list – especially this week.
By putting a green light on your front porch, you’re signaling to all of the veterans on your street, in your neighborhood and in your lives that you support and honor their decision to serve our country. It’s a small, but unifying gesture of appreciation. And it’s easy to do. I’ve heard Walmart has stocked up on green lightbulbs just for this special occasion, so I’m off to buy my share.
Here’s to a day full of gratitude!
