Happy Memorial Day

My father in law Douglas Bourland....we miss you dad!

“It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.” -Norman Schwarzkopf

I hope you are all having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

For many, it's just 3 days off work.  For others, it's the numerous sales going on at many stores.  But for many like myself, it's the moment to pause, to reflect and to think about the men and women who have served, who have lost their lives giving the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of this country.

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.
