I am thankful for every day heroes

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks to and celebrating the every day heroes in our lives, the people that we meet each day.  There are people who touch my life every day, some of whom I know personally, and others whom I don’t know, but who affect or inspire me in profound or meaningful ways.

I’m thankful for the people in the military who serve and protect us, or who have served in the past.  I’m thankful for the service and sacrifice of the homeless vet who was stuffing newspapers into his jacket outside the coffee shop last week.  I hope he has had a warm meal tonight.  

I’m thankful for the spouses of the troops who provide so much support and who sacrifice so much in order make our military’s service possible. 

I’m thankful for those who gave up their Thanksgiving to volunteer at a soup kitchen or food pantry this year.

On a personal note, I’m thankful to the California Highway Patrol, and the two officers who watched over me and my daughter when I blew out a tire on the Interstate in the middle of nowhere.  They were angels in the desert.

I’m thankful to the Long Beach TSA, and the security guard who carried my diaper bag and escorted me and my daughter to the gate when I was running late for a flight.  I truly appreciate your going the extra mile.

My thoughts are with those who have had to work on Thanksgiving, apart from family.  You are working so that the rest of us can enjoy amenities that we often take for granted, so thank you very much!

On another personal note, I have to thank my husband, who is working so hard to make his dreams a reality, so that our family can have a better tomorrow.  To my daughter and my parents, thank you for making my life magical.  And to my friends and family, you know who you are.  It goes without saying that you mean everything to me.

I am so grateful to all the readers of my Reel Mama blog.  Your support truly means a lot to me!  I look forward to introducing the next exciting chapter in the coming year.

Have a joyous holiday season!
