I woke this morning and reminded my boys it was memorial day. Doing my usual quiz of what the day is about. I was really impressed with how quickly Blake fired off his responses.
Momma it means people like Papa and Pop Pop are honored. They have a day that thanks them. He is right. It is a day to thank and support our troops for being Self Less and Courageous so you can have your freedom. Without those who protect us we would not have our freedom. So thank you to all our military men and woman. Thank you to the spouse who let their better half fight for our freedom.
We are a proud military family full of veterans. My grandfather did Vietnam and Korea. My mom can remember when her dad left and how they were so excited for the phone calls to come and the letters to arrive. My grandfather is proud to have served his country. I couldn’t be prouder to share a bit of his story. My cousin’s husband served in Afghanistan. He is now home with us. Thank you Derek. My Step father was part of the National Guard. We were always proud to go to family days and see him march.
So remember to thank someone who has provided service and sacrifice to this country.
Yes we know this day is about a whole lot more as well. We keep to the basics for our boys. Have a great holiday.
