On Veterans Day we wanted to do something special and start a new holiday tradition, so we loaded up in minivan and headed to the Gold Crown Store to pick out three cards from the Hallmark Truly Thankful collection for our local Veterans and the Troops overseas.
We truly enjoyed creating this video of our new holiday tradition inspired by Hallmark Gold Crown cards and gifts!
After picking out the cards we attended the local Veterans Day ceremony, the kids and I walked around collecting signatures and words of gratitude and thanks from members of our community. It was truly a wonderful experiences, the stories we heard of loved ones who had served and those currently stationed overseas warmed out hearts. My favorite was how the night before Veterans Day three local Veterans who happened to be stationed on the same ship over 60 years ago were reunited, this brought tears to my eyes. Life is remarkable and giving thanks is to those who serve to protect it is the least we could do.
