Happy Veterans' Day!

Seriously, I love myself a little sap. Give me a good underdog story, I'm in. A story of a Texas H.S. football team playing a group of kids from the juvenile prison and how the whole town cheered for the incarcerated teens, I'm weeping like a baby.

But this video did me in. I was a blubbering mess, crying so hard Dea came in to check on me. And to laugh at my sniffling and boo-hooing.

But then, total vindication. Trey = big ol' man tears. I double-dog dare you not to cry.

Today, and everyday, we are thankful for the men and women who serve our country and who have fought in wars to defend our freedom.

You too, Bryan. And Grandpa. Thank you. I love you!

Yes, it makes me cry too! You're hard-pressed to find anything that will make a kid cry for sheer joy... they just don't DO that. This shows me a snapshot of how tough it is to live without the loved one who is overseas.

Ok, I should have never looked at your blog at the office! I'm sitting here in an absolute PUDDLE and my makeup is running down my face! Not a pretty sight. This was AWESOME (dad said I can't use the word amazing)...thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you to all our Veterans, especially Bryan & Grandpa.

That was a good cry. Thank you for sharing. I'm so grateful for all the men and women who go through so much for all of us, and have to be away from their loved ones in order to do it. That's alot to give for our freedom.

Thank you for posting that video. It was absolutely perfect for Veteran's Day and a great reminder of the sacrifices that our soldiers and their families face.

Thank you. I needed a huge cry before bed:). I love this and watch it time and time again.

I think this is how heaven will be. When we see Jesus face to face, we won't be able to keep from running.

I need re-hydration after that. I'll never recover.

The sweet kid at 5.36 min in about did me in.
