After speaking to a dear friend last night I feel more motivated then ever. Great things are to come in January. I want to help as many people as possible and help grow awareness for the troops so that we can give them and their families as much support as possible. My friend challenged others and it was a great idea. She challenged everyone to buy one extra item this holiday season. Whether it is a food item for the local food pantry or a toy for toys for tots. We should try to donate something this holiday season to those that are in need. Send a card to solider or a neighbor that does not have family near them. Try to do something for another person.

I have been away for a family vacation, but I am back. It was the best vacation, we went to Disney World. It truly is a magical place. I felt different there, that my dreams and wishes could come true.
I made some great observations though while on vacation.
Us Airways is a big supporter of military families. They participate in a program called Honor Flights. They fly American Heroes, Veterans, to Washington DC for free to see their memorials. They also offer discounts to military families.
We also went to Sea World while on vacation. My kids loved the Shamu show. I was very impressed with Sea World though. Before the show started they announced that all Veterans and active Military stand up. They applauded and thanked the military personnel for their freedom to be there doing what they love to do. They showed the crowd of people standing on the big screen. More places should do this, we would not be free if it was not for the military personnel and their families.
Now that I am back from vacation in the best place in the world I will be focused on this mission. I have some great things coming and will be needing everyone's help.
