John 15:13 Veterans Day @ Baskin Robbins

Veterans Day November 11, such a meaningful day for us,  as Americans. We take the time to recognize the heroes among us. They are the men and women who served in our armed forces, the veterans of the United States of America military. 

We pay tribute to the men and woman who risked their lives, so that we can be free. The love the verse in the bible.

Greater Love Has no one than this; to lay down ones life for one’s friend. John 15:13 
 

On Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins will donate 10 cents from every ice cream scoop sold in its U.S. locations to the United firstclasscamoicecreaminstagramService Organization (USO), in honor of U.S troops and veterans

This donation will help the USO fulfill its mission to lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families at hundreds of places around the world and help ensure they have access to the programs and services they need.

With that, Baskin-Robbins is also celebrating military personnel all month long with its November Flavor of the Month, First Class Camouflage, which features a combination of Chocolate, Salty Caramel, and Cake-flavored ice cream, special Camouflage Waffle Cone and Waffle Bowl, decorated in green, tan and brown, they will be even be able to order First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which is made up of OREO® cookie pieces, caramel praline topping, hot fudge and topped off whipped cream

Baskin­Robbins is also committed to supporting veterans through a special veteran incentive program introduced in 2012 for U.S. military veterans seeking to open a Baskin­Robbins franchise in markets across the U.S.
oAs part of the program, the company waives the initial franchise fee of $25,000 for developing a new Baskin­Robbins location in select markets for qualified, honorably discharged U.S. veterans, making it easier for them to start their own business. 

What is the USO ? 

The United Service Organizations Inc. (USO Show) is a nonprofit organization that provides programs, services and live entertainment to United States troops and their families. Since 1941, it has worked in partnership with the Department of Defense (DOD), relying heavily on private contributions and on funds, goods, and services from various corporate and individual donors. Although congressionally chartered, it is not a government agency. The USO operates 160 centers worldwide. (Information from Wikipedia )

Did you know there is a USO in almost every airport?  It’s a room where they offer military personal, a place to relax and wait while waiting for their flight. A few years ago, we traveled from Corpus Christi, TX to Phoenix, AZ for the holidays. We were able to check out the USO in Houston, TX airport. Due to our four hour layover. The USO in Houston is beautiful, a refrigerator full of drinks, their was finger food, snacks for the kids, reclinable sofas. Not to mention a play area for the kids to play, with movies to watch, computers to access internet, and tv’s  to monitor flights. All around. Beautiful. We felt blessed and fortunate to be able to wait at the USO especially since we were traveling with our two kids at the time, our daughter and son of 1 years old. It made the time go by fast. All thanks to the USO and generous people who contribute to it. We thank you very much.

A little update on my life.

Life has been a bit hectic, tiresome to say the least. Having two little ones so close in age has taken its tole on me. Too much to do and so little time or no time to do it. I’ve also been trying to lose weight, which is a challenge of its own, trying to coordinate feedings and work outs around Adryana’s school time is hard work. Not to mention once I’m ready and totally into my work out little Edward gets fussy. Which totally sucks because I’m really into it and well he is a baby ‘what do I expect’?? Right ??  I know, trust me – I get it. It’s just a battle I’ve been having to deal with lately. 

Also, our time here in Texas will be coming to an end. My husband will be transitioning back to ‘Sea Duty’ meaning we will be stationed near the ocean and deployments will be on their way. So, we will slowing get things ready to move. It’s going to happen  within the next 4 months, a bit stressful,  but we gotta roll with the punches. 

Am I the only one that feels, like they just can’t catch a break ??

Through it all, I’ve learned to lean on GOD. I get so caught up in my “wants” that i sometimes don’t  see the bigger picture. GOD opened my eyes and just told me to take it easy. Right now my duties are taking care of our little munchkins, once they get a bit older, I will have more time to myself. For now I need to just deal with it as best as I can. {It’s definitely easier said then done} but I’m really trying. Watching them play and giggle seriously makes everything worth it. Right now its all about the special moments, I’ll have the rest of my life to get fit. For now its me and them. 

 

PS: Sorry there is no BittyBentos post today, Adryana is grounded which means ‘no bento’. On a good note here is a couple of pics of the boys.
