a day of remembrance


I adore the red, white and blue decor people put out in honor of today’s national holiday, preparing the grill for a BBQ with family and friends, and having my hubby home from work to spend the day playing with us…but all too often we forget (myself included) about the true meaning of today.

So, today’s post is simply a reminder to pause, pray for and remember the men and women who have died in our nation’s service, and to thank the men and women who served our country in the past and those who continue to serve our country today, tomorrow and everyday after to protect our freedom.

Wars are being fought right now by America’s finest, thousands of miles away. The brave soldiers are just like you and me – they are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, neighbors, spouses and daughters and sons. Their families back at home are praying for their safe return. May God bless them and their families today and always. Their commitment and unwavering sacrifice to keep our lives safe is honorable, noble and will never be forgotten.

To those lives who were lost that we remember and honor today, we are forever grateful for your ultimate sacrifice and we will continue to proudly wave the red, white and blue.

Happy Memorial Day.
