__Hey ya'll! Just got back from a wonderful long weekend in Tampa and Orlando with two of my best girlfriends. We had a wonderful time hanging out on the beach, relaxing and getting in some really hardcore training where we stayed at the Macdill Air Force Base in Tampa. Other than losing a jacket (dang it) it was pretty much perfect! But ya know, reflecting back on this past weekend really has gotten me thinking... I'm beyond blessed and grateful to have such amazing friends and family, a very rewarding job that I love (although it's not always easy) along all the material stuff I really need, and be able to travel to beautiful places all over the country for little vacations, shows and expos (which is a huge blessing in itself consider the health problems I've been through)... and it's really all I ever talk about on here. But today I am simply humbled to have been able to spend time with a few true heroes... These men and women unselfishly sacrifice not only their lives without question day in and day out; but their entire ways of life as well the lives of the ones who love them, simply for our peace, protection and safety... It doesn't matter what you politically agree or disagree with, but I hope we can all just take a minute to reflect about how blessed we really our to have so many do so much for us everyday and thank just simply isn't enough...
