We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope that all of you did too. Shan got to eat a turkey dinner and three pieces of pie. In his Thanksgiving email, he remarked about how much he has to be grateful for and I had to admire his optimism. He is full of stories about the wonderful soldiers he works with and their good qualities. This year, more than ever, I was grateful for our freedom. Our freedom has an enormous price tag attached, but I feel SO blessed to have the freedoms of democracy, religion, and personal choice in so many other things. Our country is truly wonderful and so are those great Americans we call soldiers.
We missed Shan here so much, but are really looking forward to a wonderful Christmas with him here. Needless to say, we absolutely can't wait to see him.
