    Thankful

    Advertisements
    I work in a leasing office and was just showing a home to a retired military veteran, and as we were walking back to the office we were talking about where we're from and what not. It came up that DH and I are from Florida and are here due to military. As he was leaving he stopped and said, "From one veteran to another, please thank your husband for me. For his sacrifice and thank you as well, as you are part of him."

    Nearly made me cry...completely tearing up right now too.

    I know! I do not expect to get thanked, as DH is the one serving...though I do appreciate and understand the thought behind it. It was humbling and prideful as well to hear to know that folks appreciate what our spouses do and realize there are families back home who sacrifice in their own ways.

    This is a thank you to everyone on this board as well!
