MODA Newsletter: Is your heart in the right place?
I love this time of year when the leaves change colors, basketball starts, football Friday nights and of course, THE FOOD. The month of thanks is upon us and America has so much to be thankful for. I can share hundreds of stories about my European heritage my grandfather was a freedom fighter in Serbia, or of family that was held in concentration camps, or even how my family could speak very little English but built a future in America starting with tens of thousands of chickens in San Diego. I am so thankful for this country and all of the opportunity it has provided for my family. Today, I am in a beautiful state, living in a fairytale neighborhood, surrounded by friends and family, and I have the privilege of calling Tennessee my home. It is so easy to focus on the THANKS part of the holiday and forget the GIVING part. I hope that everyone takes some time, looks around them and says thank you by giving back to others.
We have all been blessed in areas we cannot even begin to understand and grace has reached into all of our lives in one way or another. So this Thanksgiving, take some time to put on your best outfit and your richest smile in order to share some of your blessing with someone else. Share the thanks of Thanksgiving by giving some of the joy to those who are around you. I hope you enjoy this magical holiday season. Thank you for your support and friendship.

Brand of Freedom
Today is the day we celebrate every single veteran and member of the United States military for keeping our country safe and free. There is something special in an American Soldier's Brand - it does not matter what part of the Armed Forces they have served, their uniform represents BRAND FREEDOM.
Our brave men and women have paid the ultimate cost for the freedoms that we often casually recognize today. It is because of our Veterans that people can actually complain about the very government that our military defends. It is because of Veterans that we can worship where we choose, send our children to any school, elect our officials, choose our careers and seek prosperity in the Land of the Free.
The Veteran has a BRAND that has been earned with Blood, Sweat and Tears. This is a brand that is deserving of our respect and support. The Veteran's Brand says Committed, Sacrifice, Determined and Freedom. Sadly, this is too often forgotten. I hope we all remember our Veterans today, and recognize that the Brand of the Soldier is worthy of a pause, a prayer and an applause.
Take the time to say thank you to the very people who have protected our shores and continue to sacrifice for the country we love. I always see the Brand of Freedom when I see you, and I am grateful for your commitment to freedom for me, my family and the rest of America. Thank You!
