Thirty Days of Thanksgiving - Day 11

There is a lot to be thankful for today...

For Veteran's Day, I am grateful for all of the men and women who have faithfully served to protect this country. 

For an extra day off, to catch up on a number of things including some reading for fun.

For getting back to my water aerobics class which I have missed the last few weeks.

For opportunities to laugh, sometimes I get way too serious and need to remember to find something fun.

....and since this is also picture book month, here is my daily picture book recommendation in honor of Veteran's Day...
