So, it is Memorial Day weekend. I am reminded and thankful for all those who have served. Without those who served I could not live the life of Freedom, nor having a safe environment to live in.
Retailers want you to believe that Memorial Day is a long weekend to get projects around your house done or cook up some burgers on the back patio. It is a day where pools open, and the unofficial start of summer. There is nothing wrong with that, but we forget that it’s about people.
Memorial Day is certainly about those people that serve in our military every day and those that once served. It is also about family and spending time with them. Even through thick and thin, and even when plans change suddenly, our families stick with us. Many times I’m amazed that they do.
I have to say thanks to my wife Susan for sticking with me, even during crazy times, and to all of my family. I don’t think I could survive this life without you all.
