30 Days of Thanks (Day 11)

Yesterday I posted about being thankful for Tom & Jerry's. Some people did not know what it is, so I will clarify here: The actual Tom and Jerry is a batter mixture made of sugar, bettercream, more sugar, egg whites, and nutmeg. I use it by adding it to a hot water/whiskey mixture (usually a shot of whiskey) and sprinkling nutmeg on top. Some people prefer brandy over whiskey. It's your choice! It is so sooo yummy, but like I said, it's much better when homemade, than store bought. You must try it! I have a homemade recipe, but it makes a huge amount - if you're interested, let me know and leave me your email address.


Day Eleven: Veterans,those who are still serving their duty, those who have fallen, and the families who belong to all these



It would be foolish of me to not take the time, today, to thank all Veterans, those who continue to serve, those who have unfortunately fallen, and the families that those listed belong to. And, it would be foolish of me to be thankful for my favorite soldier of all time, my bro-in-law, B. Thank you for your two tours of duty in Iraq and the time you have spent away from your life back here in the states. You are a true hero to me, and the rest of our family!





Also, I would like to give thanks to my wonderful sister, who has had the strength to peservere while her boyfriend (the first time) and hubby (the second time) was called to duty. She was, and is, a strong lady that I continue to admire and look-up to, even though she is younger than me. I have learned a lot from her and how she has dealt with difficult times like these.


Love you both very much!

Awesome post - thank you to all who have served our country.

So, I am pretty sure I am going to have steal this idea. I wish I hadn't been so behind and caught it on November 1. Oh well, I guess it is never to late to be thankful. Can't wait to read the rest.

You are right- it should be Veterans and their loved ones day, so many strong people in both positions. Thanks to your brother in law and sister!
