I am currently at home! Haha I love my family they are the best. I get to be around my nephews and nieces too! they are crazy but fun :D

I know its blurry but I love this picture.

Well, I just wanted to dedicate tonight's blog to our Men who protect our country. I have been thinking about it a lot lately for one reason or another. My cousin has her husband who is in the forces and also I have a child hood friend/family who is also in it. Its amazing that they give up so much to protect us and our freedom. I really am appreciative for all they do and I know i do take it for granite which I shouldn't.

On my way home, I passed a lot of trucks hauling tanks. I just am grateful for the sacrifices that the families take for their family members to deploy to different countries. Honestly I just don't know how i would feel about it, I would be proud of them, I'd support them. Just still it would stress me out. So thank you to the families as well.

"Marines Hymn"

From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines. :D

Its kind of ironic.. The day after you posted this, a friend of mine was buried. He was a Marine and he was killed in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan two weeks ago.

I dont think we should have certain days a year to remember those sacrifices. We should do it Every. Day. So thanks for your post :)
