I hope everyone has had a nice weekend
and has at some time this weekend made time to spend with family and friends. We’re mostly sitting around the house today enjoying my husband’s day off. We went to a nearby river this weekend with some of the extended family to have a picnic and let the kids wade in the water.
While like everyone else I enjoy the picnics and barbecues, the long weekend, and the extra family time I want to always remember what this holiday is really about. It’s a day to remember those who gave their lives in the service of our country. We have freedom because of them.
I don’t agree with some of the website but I liked this post by Oliver North about Memorial Day.
This Monday I’m not only remembering those who died to give us freedom. I’m saying a special prayer for the families of the American soldiers who have been killed in the last year who are facing their first Memorial Day without a loved one. I’m also saying an extra prayer for those who serve in our military and their families who are risking so much to protect our country and her friends.
