Thankful Thursday with Cousin Trooper

Since his Mom is away, Cousin Trooper is thankful for his pal Winston the Bear!

Today we are also Thankful for all of those who have served our Country.

Veterans Day Prayer By Susan Kramer

"You gave for peace with courage
That families may be free
So children could grow strong
And safe they'd ever be.

In giving for the sake of peace
You may have suffered loss
Your body may still show its wounds
From taking up the cause.

May remembrance of your time away
Your sacrifice for peace
Spur us on to strive more strongly
For freedom, that there'll be release.

From causes that sent some away
To fight that we may freely live
With gratefulness we thank you, veterans
For all you gave and give!"

Lovely. Let us never forget those who have given their lives or been wounded, or, indeed, survived intact (bodily at least) to keep the rest of us safe.
