Thank You to Military Family and Friends

I would like to take an opportunity to thank the family and friends who support our service members.  While enlisted men and women are working to keep us safe, family and friends are "holding down the fort." That includes spouses, grandparents, neighbors, friends and church members.  Thank you for being there so that our service men and women are able to do their jobs without worrying about things at home.  You are all very special, brave, patient and loving individuals who make a difference everyday. 

"There is no force in the world better able to alter anything from its course than love...Meeting the world with a loving heart will determine what we find there."  Gregory Boyle, Jesuit priest and founder of a gang-intervention program. 

All of you find ways to manage all of the endless errands, duties, responsibilities, and day-to-day necessities to keep everything going.  You are heroes also. 

"I wish I could tell you it gets better, but it doesn't get better. You get better."  Joan Rivers, comedian

You are the ones who have to adapt with carrying on a life without the loved one who is deployed.  You are the ones who have to worry about whether this man or woman will return physically, mentally and spiritually the same.  You have to wonder if they will return alive or disabled.  You become stronger and "better" as you shoulder the obligations of life.  You are the anchors and the wings for our service men and women! 

Thank you very much!
