gratitude: part 12


my nephew has enlisted in the military…the air force to be exact. he is at boot camp right now in texas and will graduate in august. in last week’s update from his mom on how he was doing, she said that he was allowed to listen to music for a day and he was so excited about it. he said you don’t realize how much you take for granted in your life. this is so true…from the small things like music to the big things like your family. i am so proud of him for making the decision to sacrifice these things in his life so we can have our freedom…which we should be grateful for every day. we are thinking and praying for you garrett!
