Well, sometimes you just need to set aside a month to recognize what should be recognized 12 months of the year. This month, let’s remember military families make sacrifices for this nation in having to wait at home and keep the home fires burning while our warriors are away on foreign shores.

If you know a military family, take a moment to let them know that you appreciate them. Offer to mow a lawn, fix a leaking sink, or maybe get the family and needed oil change for the car. Do you lLike kids?:) (we do), offer to babysit and give that parent who is now alone a needed break! Maybe you can just mail a card, letting them know you understand that it is not easy to wait for many long months for a loved one to return home.

Whatever you do this month to recognize military families, adding some prayers for the safe return of our troops is always important! May is another military appreciation month and in April we commemorate the month of the military child. These are all wonderful times to keep us aware of the needs of our military.

Of course those of us who have a loved one far from home need no reminders, but we truly appreciate each small remembrance that the country stands behind our military families!
