America the Beautiful

Here at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Happy Valley we love our military members. We fly the American flag in front of the business with an Army flag underneath Old Glory. Did you know Matt the technician is a military veteran? If you see Matt show him your gratitude.
After the Mr. Rooter Conference in Alabama last week, Dale the owner and his son-in-law saw off a group of soldiers from Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. The soldiers had quite the goodbye with a beautifully bright pink sunrise. Farewell ceremonies are full of heart tugging goodbyes and tears. This sunrise warmed the heart a little.
It is never easy to send off loved ones. Birthdays will be missed. Holidays will pass. Life does not stop when soldiers leave their families. Families record and document every prom, graduation, birth, first word, first walk, first day of school, anniversary, etc.
We take for granted the moments these families wish they had. Let us slow down every day and hug our loved ones a little tighter. Say thank you to those who have served past and present. Say thank you to the families who stood by their soldiers through the good and bad. We wish all of our deployed military God’s speed and protection. We pray for comfort for the families. God Bless America!
