Memorial Day- Family and Country

Memorial Day  gives us time to reflect
 on loved ones that have gone on before us,  our country  and those who have served in the military. 

  I haven't had the pain of sending one of
my sons off to war and can only imagine how difficult that must be.  
My father served  in Viet Nam
and clearly that was the hardest year in our families lives.   He returned safely but several of  my friends fathers did not and I remember how difficult that was. 

Many have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can  enjoy our freedoms.  I pray especially for their families and that they be honored and remembered today.

I count my blessings and have so much to be thankful for.  We proudly display the stars and stripes and are so grateful to
 live in the land of the free and the home of the brave! 


  1. Nice tribute, and I couldn't agree more!

  4. I too could not imagine what it must be like for the families who have sent a loved one, or a son, off to war.
    This was a really nice, touching post.



I love to hear from you!
