I really don't blog and can't figure out why because I really do like to "talk things out" and blogging seems to be a good therapy session to me. Today 5/30/10 Memorial Day is a good day to start on a more consistent basis. I first am thinking of my mom and dad today on this Memorial Day. Mom passed away 1 year ago, dad passed away 21 years ago. I miss them still very much. There are so many other relatives that are now gone who taught me so much about life and who showed unconditional love to me as well as all my siblings. Today is a day to remember but really I think of them everyday. I think about our Veterans who lost their lives so that freedom continues in our country and the sacrifices of families of those lost. There are no words to convey our appreciation for all of them but to never forget them and keep honoring them through Memorial Day Services and reaching out to their families and if you know someone personally who has lost a member of the Armed Forces then write down that family member's loved one's birth date and/or the day they lost their life and send a note to their family member so they know they are not forgotten. I work with someone who lost her nephew in Iraq and I know how much she appreciates his name mentioned on these days and it means a lot to her that he is never forgotten. How easy it is to take these losses for granted after years pass by. Never ever forget, always acknowledge and continue to pray for the families. TOMORROW, is going to be another change for our family for tomorrow we see our youngest son off to the United States Marine Corps Boot Camp. Tomorrow will be an emotional day but a day filled with pride for a son who has worked so hard to accomplish what he needed to accomplish in order to see this day finally come. Stay tuned.
May God Bless all on this Memorial Day 2010!
