Memorial Day

I think that so many of us sometimes get so busy with the excitement of the long weekend, the grilling out, the working in our yards, the big sales at the stores and the beginning of summer that we need a moment to stop and remember...
Memorial Day is a national day of mourning. Mourning but also CELEBRATING the very freedom that so many men and women gave their lives for.

It's true - we get caught up and forget to say 'thank you'. I hope there comes a day very soon where wars of any kind are a thing of the past. xox! Pam

I always get teared up when they show Arlington Cemetery ceremony. My parents and sister are put to rest there and they were so proud to be Navy.
