There’s nothing I love more than to sit down for dinner with my family each night. It gives us time to catch up on how our days went and enjoy delicious food. I know I need to appreciate this a lot because there are lots of people that don’t get to enjoy this – like our amazing servicemen and women. They are a special group of people that fight for our country each day and not get to see their family as often as they would like.

I remember watching the Care Bears when I was a child.

That is why Wednesday, September 9 is the official “Share Your Care” Day everywhere.
