Memorial day Thanks

How will you give thanks on this Memorial Day?
Will you attend a parade.
Salute a hero.
Raise an American Flag?

 I am giving thanks today on this Memorial day and thinking of all those who have served and fought for freedom.  Thank a veteran today.
Memorial day may mean so many things to each of us.  I give thanks today to all the hero's.  Freedom means so much to each of us, it certainly deserves Thanks and praise.

I have raised a flag and will certainly be remembering what today is all about. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

Patricia, When my late husband passed I gave his military flag to his son. It has taken me too long and now I am going to to replace it!

We raised our flag yesterday, I hugged a vet in the grocery store, big baby wimpered and we went to the parade this morning. Now we're doing some big time mowing after a week of rain!

Happy Memorial Day Patricia!

Amen Patricia. God bless every single one of the amazing heroes who make this the best country in the world. We are so blessed.

I went to a Memorial Day ceremony in the town I was born in. The older Military men standing so proud in their uniforms brought tears to my eyes. I shook hands with them, and one even "stole" a kiss. It was funny. Came home, looked at our flag and had a little cry.
