Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

Remember and give thanks!

 I remember posting about Memorial Day last year
and showing you the Avenue of Flags
that our small town displays 
at one of the local cemeteries.

It is a grand sight.
Seeing our flag flowing in the breeze always gives me a great feeling.
Seeing row upon row of them 
gives me goosebumps.
I love this country!

I am also glad that our citizens
set aside one day to 
honor the men and women of the armed services
who have served,
and given their lives in that service.

I just viewed some photos
that have been posted on
Pioneer Woman,
showing homecomings
between some of this nations soldiers and their families.
Stop by there and enjoy the entries,
but keep a kleenex handy because...

Freedom is not free
and you will see some dear Americans who are paying for 
you and me to enjoy that freedom.

Giving thanks today
for all who have gone before me,
and hoping I can do my small part
protect what others have died for.

 Happy Memorial Day everyone!


  1. Lovely post, MIL. I have been sniffling at PW's photos all week.

  2. We went to the service over at the Veteran's Memorial at 2pm. So touching. I almost cried over one of the stories. Such courage and sacrifice! To be highly valued.


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
