i am thankful

Today, I am simply thankful.

When Ryan and I first started dating, he was entertaining the idea of getting out of the Army.

His contract was nearing its end,

and he wasn’t feeling very inspired in his current position.

But he had a thought…what if I change my career path, stay in and truly make a difference?

And so, he re-enlisted to serve another six years.

He was accepted into Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCs),

and he knows he has a purpose with his job.

It’s for us. 

It’s for our country.

He is one of a kind,

and I am so, so proud and thankful for him, for his character, for his service, and his commitment to our country.

To all our men and women in uniform – past and present – thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Happy Veteran’s Day
