Being a somewhat newbie blogger and only blogging for a little over a year, I received my “year in review” from Word Press. I thought it was kinda cool.
Besides telling me my top 5 blog posts, it also told me how people found my blog. Four of the options were from websites, but the fifth one was from a fellow blogger, Jason at Harsh Reality.
Ironically, Jason’s blog was the first blog I started following after I joined Word Press. Back then, there loomed a promise of offending people. While he failed on that front, with me at least, his blog has been a refreshing view of reality that I continue to enjoy a year later.
If you have a moment, stop by, if you haven’t already, and tell him “HI” from the Pink Herald!
“None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.” (Fred De Witt Van Amburgh)
Several years ago, I had the privilege of “meeting” singer, Jimmy Parker. I first “met” Jimmy in a military radio station chat room. It was there that I first heard the song, “A Soldier Is Worth It To Me“.
It conveys the simple message of how easy it is to be appreciative to our military and their families for the sacrifices they make in order to keep us free.
It’s a simple song but the message has always stayed with me, because it’s an important one. I have thanked many military personnel, with gift boxes, coffee, letters, standing in a flag line with the Patriot Guard Riders, a handshake and/or a hug.
Take a moment to extend thanks to our service personnel the next time you see them. They really do appreciate it.
