Happy Thanksgiving

Just a few lines from a song that's in my head today....If you have never seen Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby, please rent it this holiday season!! It's definetly a Cox Clan favorite!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
"I've got eyes to see with
Ears to hear with
Arms to hug with
Lips to kiss with
Someone to adore?
How could anybody ask for more?
My needs are small
I buy them all
At the five and ten cent store
Oh, I've got plenty to be thankful for!!"

Today I am a little emotional. Today I am a little nostalgic. Today I am a little sad. But today I am very honored. For two reasons really...You see, today 5 years ago a friend of mine named Ryan McGlothlin was killed while serving our country in the U.S. Marines. And today, I had the privilege of making a dress (out of her daddy's camos)for a little one who will see her daddy for the first time on Monday November 22nd as he comes home from a tour of duty with the U.S. Marines. I do not believe in coincidences. I do not believe in chance. I believe in God and that ALL things happen for a reason. So, as I reflect on Ryan McGlothlin and what a true hero he is to me and so many others for the sacrifice he and his family have made, I am also thankful and humbled to Josh Bush and his wife Amber and children Arios and Isabella Mae as they prepare for a very happy reunion. I am honored to be a small part of both of their lives. Thank you each for your service to our country. May God bless you and your families. Semper Fi - Always Faithful!
