Every Anzac Day I become very emotional about the sacrifices of the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our way of life.
However, on a little bit of a more superficial and domestic level, I am particularly thankful for the everyday things, that we don't have to ration food , petrol and clothing, as in the war. Maybe it is because my parents were born just before WWII and experienced rationing from an early age, and subsequently, I have adopted their "war mentality." I even have a "War Cabinet" chock-a-block full of food I have stock piled from sales...just in case.
Lest we forget.
