God Bless America

This is my brother Tim and his wife Elizabeth. They have faithfully served our country for many years through the military. As I went to the polls on Wednesday, I was trying to put into words for my two boys who were with me what it means to live in America, where we have the right to vote and it is done peacefully.

I'm so very grateful for all those who have fought for our freedom and sacrificed so much.

Thank you, Veterans!!

They are very amazing and selfless. It's not an easy gig. P.S. I really hope you went to the polls on Tuesday!

This is such a precious post to me. Thank you. Tim works so hard for the Guardsmen and is so low-key and unassuming about what he does, it's hard to put into words the situations he faces on a daily basis...hurting marriages, grieving families, soldiers struggling with PTSD or finances or divorce or parenting....but God has gifted him in such a unique way, he is sought out and respected within the Guard. I'm proud to stand beside him and do what I need to do at home in order to make him available to those who need him outside the home.
