I spoke with my Mother in Law this morning.
It is cold where she lives. She told me she spent the day thinking about her Father. Her Father was a Veteran and fought in the Battle of The Bulge and Normandy.
She said she spent her day feeling chilled down to her bones, and was thinking about her Father. The only gifts her Father had ever bought for her were coats. She said he had a gift for buying the warmest of warm coats, and even as an adult woman she would be surprised by the occasional gift of a warm coat.
We spoke about the Battle of The Bulge and the length of time he had probably spent feeling cold.
It was a wonderful reminder about how much one person is willing to sacrifice for others.
