I just wanted to remind everyone to nominate your #ThanksgivingHero before the November 15th deadline. I wrote about it last week, but I’ll remind you. A “Thanksgiving Hero” is anyone who regularly works on Thanksgiving. Think: police officers, firefighters, nurses, doctors, retail workers, gas station employees, other essential staff. They’re apart from their families on the holiday so that you can be with yours.
Now I’ll share the nomination I sent in for this awesome initiative.
My #ThanksgivingHero is more than just my hero on Thanksgiving. He’s my every single day hero, and I’ve been married to him for nearly eleven years.
He spent eight years in the Army National Guard, worked as a Paramedic, and landed a job at the city fire department right after we got married. He works tirelessly, 24 hours at a time, not only to provide for our family, but to care for the citizens of our town. He’s a hand-on dad, a lover of the vacuum, and cleans the chicken coop without complaint. He’ll be at work this Thanksgiving, and we’ll miss him terribly.
He’s been my rock, my personal comedian, my best friend, my cheerleader, my motivation, my love, my everything for over a decade now. Without him, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Thankful doesn’t begin to describe how I feel that we have him in our lives.
I won’t be mad if your hero beats my hero, so go ahead and nominate your #ThanksgivingHero today.
