A Veteran's Day Thank You -- for Joy's Life
Today is Veteran's Day, and it's a big day at the nursing home. There are many Veterans where I work. Fewer and fewer of them are WWII veterans, but there still are quite a few. They are a generation where defending their country didn't feel like a choice to them, it felt like a duty. Saying thanks seems like the least we can do for our veterans. They have given so much for our freedom.
My father is a veteran, and will be at the Veteran's Day Program at the nursing home today. Sometime during the day, I'm going to slip him this little treat box, just so he knows I love him, and I'm thankful for him.
I put some of his favorite chocolates in the box. He'll be happy!
I used the Joy's Life stamp set, "It's All Fall Puns" on the sentiment.
I cut this box out on my Silhouette. I found the file in the Silhouette Online Store. Here's another view of the box.
Here's a link to the cutting file, if you're interested. The designer paper is My Mind's Eye, American Made 12x12. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I promised to pick a winner today for the blog candy from the "On the Table" blog hop. Random.org chose #7, Jessica. Her comment was:
Congrats, Jess! Send me you address so I can send you your winnings!
Don't forget to thank a Veteran today -- and everyday.
