Happy Memorial Day

 My wonderful father in law.....we miss you dad!

I want to give a big thank you to the men and women who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice in order to bring us freedom and to keep us safe.

A special thank you to my father in law who is no longer with us, and to my husband who is currently serving and has been for the past almost 21 years. 

Let us not forget the real reason for this day. 

It's not just about barbecues, drinks and hanging out with friends.  For us, it's the daily reminder as we watch our husbands put on the uniform and head out the door, or say goodbye as they travel across the world to fight for our children, for our rights, for our freedom.

Please take a moment today to think about and to say a prayer for not only the troops that have passed on, but for the Veterans and for the Armed Forces who are currently serving.
