Thank you and Anniversary Give Away ~ Who wants a free Ebook?
I remember doing a Thank you post last year. Which means I’ve been blogging for a year now.
So first, and most importantly, I want to thank everyone we’ll be remembering this Monday. Memorial Day is a great event. I have family who’ve served. Gladly and with all their heart.
My uncle (married to my favorite Aunt) ended up being deployed just a few months after their marriage. It was a tough time for my Aunt. Even though I was still pretty much a kid, I remember how much she hurt. They talked on the phone and sent letters as often as they could, but it was still a difficult, worrisome time. Yet they loved each other, and their love stayed strong even through the year of separation.
When my uncle came back, they continued on with their lives. Today, after hardships and other trials, they still love each other very much. They have a family now, and I’m so proud of them for pushing through the tough times.
In fact, they are one of the couples I think about while writing… At least, the non-spicy parts, LOL. They let their love conquer all adversity, from deployment to biological factors when trying to start a family. In recent years, with the depression, they’ve faced layoffs and foreclosure, yet their marriage is still as strong today as it was when they said those magic words, “I do”.
They are my example that no matter what, love really can last.
And my Uncle is my example when I think of everything our military gives up in order to keep us free.
So Thank you to those wonderful men and women who put their own lives on hold to protect us.
Thank you to all who give their lives for me and everyone who calls themselves an American.
Whether you believe in war or not, Thank you to all who go out and sacrifice so the rest of us don’t have to.
Politics have nothing to do with Memorial Day. Only thanks does.
And now, for the giveaway.
For everyone who responds to this email by Monday night at 11:59pm (PST) I will enter for a GRAND PRIZE drawing of your choice of one of my Dragos e-books.
I will also enter 3 people to win a complete set of Dragos Romance Trading Cards.
So tell me, why are you thankful for our veterans? Who do you remember the most on these days, and what does it mean to you?
(And remember to leave me a way to contact you for your prize, LOL)

I do appreciate all those who serve, Amber–thanks for reminding us what Memorial Day is about (not just BBQs!) Those in the military and their families make a tremendous sacrifice to keep us safe and free. My father served as a young man, and I’m thankful that he was able to come home safely. May those who are serving us now enjoy that same pleasure.

I am thankful for the freedom and the protection our troops provide for us.

Out of each generation, at least one member of my family has served, and we have been very blessed to have each of them return home safely to us. This is a day to remember those that served and continue to serve, and thank them for their bravery.
