Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day, we say. But, it isn’t really meant to be a happy day. It is a day for remembrance.

So, while we are enjoying our day off, 3-day weekend, having bbqs and parties, we need to stop and take a moment, and pay our respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, defending our great country and securing our freedom. Remembering and honoring those heroes (our true heroes) who never made it home alive. Families who lost their: husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter.

Our freedom isn’t free.

God Bless to all of our fallen soldiers. May peace be given to their families. May God keep watch over all those that are currently serving, continuing to give us our freedom, and keep them safe.

And while we have many days for thanking/remembering our soldiers: Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day; it is something that we should be doing daily. The thousands of men & women who put their lives on the line every day should not need a special day, it should be every day.

Saying these 2 little words, Thank You, doesn’t seem nearly enough. Words cannot express my gratitude to all those (past and present) that serve and protect us.


It’s been awhile…

Hey Guys,

Sorry that I haven’t blogged in quite some time (almost 2 months!!!).

I’ve been busy at work (it’s now our busy season) and have been needing the off time from work to do some serious decompressing. Have not had the motivation for anything else. And, I have been hating myself for that.

When I was blogging daily, I felt better. I feel like I should get back on that habit. But, I fear that they would end up being rambling blogs, and I don’t want to do that. So, I’m working on brainstorming on things that I can do, share with you. And, I also need to get back to using the blog what I initially meant for it, my own writing (or the total lack thereof).

As my friend Stan says, forgive yourself and forget! Move along! Check out his latest blog: Why You Shouldn’t Be Hard On Yourself When You Fall Short Of The Mark

Please stay tuned…Exciting things are yet to come…
