Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I want give respects to those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  I am the granddaughter, cousin, niece, and wife of veterans, and in-law to many more.  Serving in the armed forces runs deep in my family and we sincerely empathize with all those that have lost a loved one while in active duty.  This holiday can be both painful and joyous for many, and our hearts send love and compassion for whatever this day holds for those grieving.

Today is Day 4 of my gloriously long weekend!  And, I still have one more day to go!  I'll be spending time with family today, enjoying their company.

I wish you all a beautiful Memorial Day.  May you say a prayer for all those that have served and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Be open to what comes.
