Military Family Month

      November is a month associated with two main holidays. Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. Both are traditionally celebrated by most Americans. What most people don't know is that November is also Military Family Month. Military families may not know the resources out there to help with raising a family. and have numerous programs out there. I would encourage you to check those out. I have personally used some of the income tax programs that Military One Source offers every year. It saves a lot of money each year instead of paying a few hundred of your hard earned dollars to have someone else do them for you.

     I am so thankful this year for all the blessings that I have in my life. First and foremost I am thankful for our little miracle. My daughter is a gift that my wife and I had been waiting on for a long time. We didn't think we were going to have kids. In fact, we were told that the odds of us having kids were small. Thank God the doctors were wrong. I knew my life would change once she came into the world but I never could have fathomed how much.
    Everything revolves around making sure she has the best of what we can offer. I am so humbled that I am the first man in her life. It's a huge responsibility. Although she is only a few months old I know she's watching me and learning. It's my sole purpose is to show her what to expect from men and be that example. She will grow up watching how I interact with her mom and what it is to be a strong individual. I am just so thankful.

   I'm thankful for my wife and all that she puts up with. I can't sit here and tell you I'm perfect with a straight face. I have my faults, but I'm gracious that I have her to count on to point those fault out to me. It only makes me a better person, husband, and father.

   During the month try to think of the things you are thankful for. Even if you have had the worst year yet, there has to be something to be thankful for.
