I’m over on Kenarry: Ideas for the Home sharing my 2017 Printable Monthly Calendar that you can download for free!
2016 certainly had its moments of joy and sorrow for my family. I’m definitely hoping that 2017 is full of more joy, health and happiness for not only my family, but your family as well.
We found ourselves ushering out 2016 with bitter joy. Joy as we spent precious time with family and heavy hearts as we saw our oldest son leave for deployment with the US Army. It was certainly heartbreaking for this mom to stand there and watch my son leave behind his precious wife and twin daughters as he heads off to serve his country from the other side of the world.
I realize that hundreds of thousands or maybe even hundreds of millions of men before him have left their homes and families to serve our country. It gives this mom new appreciation for all the sacrifices our service men and women make for our country. Just think about it for a moment. Did you know my son left his family so he could participate in a mission that affords freedom, liberty and justice for you and me? For you. For me. For our country. To make our world a safer place. My son.
Well, I didn’t intend for this post today to be about the price our military personnel pay on a daily basis for each of us, but rather to let you know I’m sharing this free little printable monthly calendar for 2017 over on Kenarry: Ideas for the Home today. So, hop on over to Kenarry and download your free 2017 printable monthly calendar.
I do hope this calendar brightens your day and maybe even helps you to be a little more organized in 2017.
