Our December 2011 trip to Scotland. The view from Edinburgh Castle.
Today, I’m thankful for the Air Force and the opportunities it gives us every day. Many of you know that the Mister is a pilot in the Air Force. Some of you know the frustrations I feel due to his employer. But with the not so great, there is the really great. A steady salary to help us pay our bills, put food in our belly’s, keep a roof over our head, and afford us the occasional treat. Health care, dental care, life insurance, and so many more grown up boxes are checked because of his job.
And then there is the fun stuff. The fact that we were able to travel to England and Scotland for a week last Christmas (and speaking of, I am thankful for Scotland. And England). The gym where I am welcome to any spinning class I want. The amazing friends we’ve made. And so many more extra little perks that come with being part of something so big – the military.
So today is a three parter – Thank you Great Britain, just for existing and letting this girl visit as often as she can. Thank you to the Air Force for providing a life for our little family. And thank you to my LT for working so hard, day in and day out, so we have these advantages.
