late Veteran's day post

Veteran's day didn't used to hold much meaning to me.  Honestly.  My dad retired from the Army before I was even born, and I didn't grow up truly thinking about what it means to be a veteran.

I have had the most humbling experience recently.

Hubby and I were in Hobby Lobby picking up a couple of random scrapbook papers I needed.  He had seen a cool looking page in an older lady's hands, and pointed it out to me.  I asked her if she could show me where she found it, and she did.  Then she looked at me and said, "While I'm talking, let me say thank you."  And she shook my hand, and then his.  ACU uniforms are so normal to me, that I don't even really notice when my husband is wearing his uniform.  But he was wearing it that day, and it is the first time that I have even had my hand shaken, and been told "Thank you for all that you do, and everything you sacrifice." 

Definitely made me stop and think, though. Alot of people ask us how we do it.  Its honestly not anything that we stop and think about.  We just do it.  That could be the Army wife slogan! :P
