Today is another full day of cleaning and cooking/baking in an attempt to get ready for tomorrow.
This is the first year that we are cooking a Turkey (my Russ will be taking on this task!). We haven't had Thanksgiving by ourselves since we were stationed at Fort Bragg. Which has been three or four years ago.
We didn't do anything special for this holiday last year because we had literally just moved to Colorado, where we are stationed now.
Last year, my Husband was sent home early from deployment. Last year he was going back and forth to doctors for his back.
After 4 deployments, that back of his just wasn't going to cut it anymore.
He is now on Med. Board status and in the final stages of that. We are just patiently waiting for those "you're outa here" orders.
So for this years Thanksgiving, I am thankful to be spending another Turkey Day as an Active Duty Army Wife, my Husband and our amazing kiddos, my Family & Friends, the brave Hero's that are deployed and missing their families, the brave Families that are missing their Hero's. But most of all, I am thankful for those Hero's who made the ultimate sacrifice and the Families that have loved and missed them every day.
May you and your's have a very wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving and many things to be Thankful for!
