Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

Thoughtful Thursday....Thank you, Veterans.

November 11th, Veterans Day. The day set aside to honor the men and women who served in any of the branches of the United States Armed Forces during war or peace time. There's so many who work day in and day out protecting our nation whether on this soil or on a foreign one. This nation was built on a variety of beliefs along with the blood, sweat, and tears from our ancestors. Many before us have laid the foundation for our freedoms and many today continue to protect those for us and our future generations. We don't all have to have the same education, profession, interests, or religious beliefs; but we all must acknowledge the truth of the matter that we would not be able to have those differences and the right to thrive in them if it weren't for the people who volunteered to protect us while we've enjoyed those freedoms. I pray we all remember all the ones who have lost their lives, served in all the past wars, and all those who continue to serve in our military today. Tell a veteran, "thank you" and then say a prayer for them.
