I started to look for a generic, patriotic picture of soldiers so I could write a quick blog post and remind you all to take a few minutes before the end of your day to remember what this day is all about.
Besides the grilling and picnics and 3 day weekend, Memorial Day is a day that we should all reflect on the sacrifices of those who have come before us and those who serve today…
Fighting to protect our freedom.
Then I remembered I didn’t need to look for a picture because in addition to my uncles, my cousins, my nephew and friends, we have two soldiers right here…
Well, not exactly right here.
They are still in Arizona at AIT.
But we are thankful as I know they are too that their Daddy and Granny got to fly in and spend time with them because they got a 4 day pass off base.
They’ve seen the glorious Grand Canyon.
Side note: I’m not sure how much PhilBillPaul and Granny actually saw because they appear to have their eyes closed.
And thanks to a special family in Mesa, they spent a beautiful day boating on Sagauro Lake.
You don’t have to save your gratitude and prayers for Memorial Day. On any given day, I hope you’ll send up a prayer for our military and their families…
and my darling twin daughters.
Here’s a great video worth taking 4 minutes from your day to watch and remember…
