Every year on Thanksgiving our family sits around An huge dinner that took all day to make and took tons of effort from the amazing women in our family. We always talk about and give thanks to some of the most important things in our lives and I always have so much to be thankful for every year. My older boys are unbelievable, my two youngest being so much joy into our lives, my wife is amazing and my in laws are less like in laws and more like just mom and dad. With all that said I would like to share a experience I had just yesterday while training a service dog named Diamond at our local Lowe’s store. He is being trained to help his owner David work through PTSD after serving our country for so many years. As we were doing our training we had several men come up and shake David’s hand and thank him for his service. Of course David is super humble and just says thank you and goes about his way while Dimond his service dog in training would rather jump and thank those men for thanking David … Lol we are working on that but you have to love his excitement. They showed so much appreciation for David’s service and it was overwhelmingly a positive experience. The last person we met walked up to me and said “are you the trainer ” and I stood up tall and said yes I am thinking he was going to talk with me and maybe ask for training services for his dog. Then he said ok and then walked right over to David and adamantly thanked him for his service. It made me kinda laugh at myself and it made me so proud to be working with Dimond and David in service work. So today I am thankful for two things on top of everything else and that is a special thanks for service men and woman who protect our country and give us the liberties we enjoy everyday.
