Memorial Day

 
 
Thank you to all who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. 
 
Thank you to all who mourn their loss.
 
 
Monday is Memorial Day when we honor our war dead.  In my part of the USA, many people are heading to the shore and to lakes.  Let’s not forget the true meaning of this time off from work and school. 
 
Go to a parade and salute the veterans and active military.  Fly your stars and stripes proudly.  Say a prayer for our valiant warriors.
 
God bless America.

  1. Hello Gail,
     
    Thank you very much for the very moving tribute. Memorial Day has such a deep meaning for those who are serving and have served, that we can’t even express it. We do highly appreciate those who can do so for us. A lot of soldiers keep giving no matter how old they get. I did my thing by having my hair cut today to send to "Locks of Love." http://www.charityguide.org/volunteer/fifteen/locks-of-love.htm
     
    Have a wonderful and safe weekend.
     
    Peace, Love, & Blessings.

  2. Amen to your dedication!!!  We are so fortunate and blessed. The older I get the more I dwell on the real reason we reflect on this day.  In my "younger" years it was more about having a 3-day weekend.  I am grateful for every young man/woman who has taken the oath to defend our country – God Bless them.
     
    Take care and enjoy your weekend!

    Have a nice weekend, Greg

  6. LMBO Gail… I had wondered if you were kidding about the mending but then thought, huh… maybe she really doesn’t know! LOL, too funny. I do think I’ll do the highlights and then wait for the haircut for a bit, it doesn’t get near as hot near as long here as it did in the last town we lived in so, yeah… just the highlights for now. Anyway…. glad to hear the message was great today. Feels great to be inspired by a friend. Enjoy your Sunday. -Susan

  7. Damn Straight!!!  You know what is different about this war as opposed to Vietnam?  With this war we hate our administration but still love our boys ~smiles~.  In Vietnam if you remember the hippies took it out on the poor troops that came home…VERY WRONG!!!  It’s not like the @#$@ing wanted to be there ~smiles~.
     
    So cheers to all those who protect us!!!
     
    Love,
    Adam

  8. Ah the joys of homeownership.  I get to take care of all of these little details all by myself.  It’s one of those little things that set Army wives apart actually, our INGENUITY!!  We get stuff dun.  lol  (And yes, I meant to spell it that way….)  🙂

  9. Amen & Amen~ would that more people recognize the point of this day.
    No, I haven’t posted a pic of the quilt yet- maybe after I get it quilted.

  10. Thanks for the birthday wishes.  It’s been like my bday all weekend!  An update on Hopkins is on my blog.  Hope you have a nice week!

  11. Hi Gail, just stopping by to say hello, and I am back.  Flew in a couple of days ago, and I am back into teaching already.  This will last 5 weeks and then it’s time to focus on my research.  Won’t be blogging much…….I will email you later.

  12. Enjoy  your weekend.

  13. and God bless us all !!!! it is good to remember what sacrifices others have made for our freedom .
    the weekend that you call ‘memorial ‘ is called Whitsun/ or Pentecost sunday here in England. To many people  it is just a long weekend with no more meaning than moaning about the traffic to and from the coast 😦 Pentecost is a favourite day in our Churches calendar for me and I enjoyed the praise service we had on sunday evening ,though it was not well attended .I still have a croaky throat from all the singing …lol
    have a great weekend Gail ,with plenty of peaceful rest 🙂
     
    love and blessings
