A Thank-You Note to Our Military Wives

The strength it takes to be one of those military family members waiting at home is incredible! These women waiting on their husbands or fiances to come home have so much to take care of here while they worry about their men. They are so wonderful to support their guys in these hard times and the same for the husbands of the women out there fighting. Thank you!

I am immensely proud to live in this country of privilege and gratefully extend thanks to those who served in the past, present and future. I offer up loving prayers to those wives, husbands, children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and extended family members who keep the home fires going and offer their loving support for their uniformed family members. I am forever indebted.

I say a prayer for our men and women every night. They put their lives on the line for you and me. It doesn't matter what branch of the military you serve in, you serve this country and you serve it well. They are our heroes, our children, our husbands and wives, our fiances, our brothers and sisters and our best friends. To our service men and women who are over there fighting for our freedom, we love you and we thank you and God bless you.

I am grateful to them all for keeping us safe and for the sacrifices they have made. And for all those families who are waiting for fathers, husbands and sons to come home, my heart goes out to them.

Thank you to all of our troops serving abroad as well as here in the States. Thank you to all the significant others who stand by them and support them while they keep our country safe. My prayers and positive thoughts go out to our troops and their families on a daily basis.

In this post-9/11 world, it really makes you appreciate our military and their families even more! Coming from a family with a very long line of people that are serving or have served in the military, I cannot really even put into words how much that service means to me! God bless our troops and their families everywhere. God bless those who have lost their lives in combat and their families. God bless our veterans and their families.

To those who have served, are serving and will serve and the families who love them, thank you! This Memorial Day, I'd like to take a moment to say thank you and offer prayers for you and your family as you await your loved one's return.

Every day I pray for those soldiers fighting and hope they can all make it home safely. God bless them all!
