Happy Memorial Day

It seems a bit strange to me to say that…Happy Memorial Day, especially when I think of the reason why we celebrate this day.

It’s a day to remember those who died while serving in this country’s armed forces.  Those who died made the ultimate sacrifice….the loss of their very lives for us to have the freedoms that we do.

The parades, cook-outs and celebrations are all a wonderful thing but I don’t ever want to forget the meaning behind this day.

 To those who so bravely defend and have defended this country,

and to the families and friends of those who have died, Thank You and May God Bless You.

And to my Daddy whose Birthday would have been today….I am so thankful that you taught me to appreciate this Country and the men and women who have sacrificed so much for all of us ~ I will love you forever.
