Back to regular wake up time today, and I’m more inclined to profess tiredness than gratitude.
Yet I’m able to work, and take care of my family.
My employer does interesting things to ensure armed forces have the best equipment possible.
My family sleeps under their protection.
In spite of what many believe, I am able to freely worship.
Yoda sits next to the Xbox at the base of my fireplace, and my bookshelf holds the CS Lewis Narnia Series next to Lord of the Rings, Emily Dickinson, and the Game of Thrones series.
For all this and so much more, I’m truly grateful.
