Think about people you admire and why. Do they make you laugh, appreciate your help, the ones that you can call at two in the morning and they answer the phone with “are you ok”? It has been said that if you have a handful of people you can really call your friend, then you are blessed. I have had many incredible mentors in my life for whom I am thankful and dearly miss the ones that have gone on before me.
If you ever asked me in my lifetime who do I admire, I would say the ones that fight for our country every day, our American Soldiers. Sacrifice, Honor, Bravery and Courage are four words off the top of my head when I think of our soldiers and they fit completely.
Let our soldiers know you appreciate them.
If your someone who is a soldier, or a family that has a soldier being deployed, give them a thank you for all the hard work it took to be a solider and for what they do. If they are deployed send them a care package or a card.
Let them know that you appreciate them. Check out USO.org to see how you can help.
