Happy Memorial Day!

Although I say “Happy” Memorial Day, it is only because I’m wishing you all a happy and blessed day to share with your family and friends. However, this day isn’t really one to set aside for being happy, per se. During this day we need to (no, we MUST) remember those who make our freedom and our Right to the Pursuit of Happiness possible.

For my U.S. readers, isn’t the country we live in wonderful? I know that as I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate the sacrifices that the soldiers make for us daily and think about the ones who’ve gone before us. My Grandpa fought in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II and I would give anything to be able to talk to him about it (sadly, he left us in the nineties). And my Dad did serve in the Navy. Also, I have other relatives who have served this country. To those soldiers, and all of the other soldiers, I say, “Thank you. May God go with you and you fight for this country.”

For my other readers, I hope that you remember your soldiers fondly, too. I’m sure you do.

    My grandfather also served on the Western Front, died when I was about two years old. Like you would love to have a chat…got to know him…both of them. But they made the world a better place.

    • Amen to that Woolly Muses! 🙂 I would love to go on an Honor Flight, too!

    • I also wanted to say – I’m sorry you lost your Grandfather when you were so young. I was fortunate enough to have mine until I was roughly 22. He basically raised me, particularly through my teens. Very blessed.

        You were blessed. Mum’s father lost a leg during WW 1, cried when WW 2 was declared and died in 1941 – well before me. Dad’s father at least saw me although I was too young to remember. One of my ANZAC Day posts in April was aboout Da’s father.

      • That’s tough. They sacrificed so much for us. They are/were a true blessing! I think about my Grandpa all the time.
