Tomorrow is the 4th Monday in May - Memorial Day in the U.S.
For many, many years, we have set aside this day to come together as fellow Americans, to honor all of those who have died at war, fighting for our country.
However, this weekend, sadly, seems to have become a 'long weekend' to drink lots of beer, eat lots of BBQ, and swim... with very few thoughts of the meaning of Memorial Day.
Please take a few moments this weekend to remember why it is that our government blesses us with this long weekend. Tomorrow, DH and I will visit the cemetery, place flags at graves, and remember those that fought for our country, and our freedom. We'll take time to pray for those, like our son-in-law and his fellow troops, that are still putting themselves in danger every single day for our country.
I hope that you and your family have had a wonderful weekend together. We hope to fire up the grill ourselves tomorrow afternoon, as we enjoy the last of the weekend together.
I leave you with this thought:
"The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children". ~William Havard
