Good afternoon and Happy Memorial Day. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to any member of the military service who may visit here.Likewise to those bloggers who visit & who have family members who served our country. It is an awesome sacrifice of years of their lives - and truly sometimes their lives - given so that we can enjoy the freedoms we do today. This freedom has come at a huge price.
In my immediate family, my Dad, my 5 brothers & my DH - all served in various branches of the military (with the Navy being strongly represented). In succeeding generations some of the grandsons have also been part of the military. While it was a sacrifice of their lives & time, it's also very difficult to be the ones waiting at home. You wonder if they are safe, and pray that they will be. And miss them terribly, while being so proud they are doing their duty.
So today is a fitting time to take a moment & just say Thank You to a Vet, (or indeed, anyone who has served our country's freedoms in some way). And to remember all those who didn't get to come home to their loved ones.
God Bless & Hugs
