I love seeing lots of facebook status honoring all of those who served and died for us and who are continuing to serve our country. I am so glad people are taking this day to recognize and remember. But sadly come tomorrow most will forget, myself being included. But there are some of us who can't forget.
Growing up my best friend lived two doors down. We played together, had sleep-overs, and even boxed each other once-but that is a story for another day. In Junior High she moved to the other side of town and our friendship drifted a bit with the distance. Buy thanks to facebook we have been able to reconnect.
And why do I mention Jill today? Her husband is currently deployed, again. She has gone through this before, but this time around she is blogging about it. She writes about what it is like to raise two young girls while her husband is away. So today please head over to her blog (just click the link here) and thank her for the sacrifice her whole family gives.
