Memorial Day!

Today was a beautiful day and a perfect one to celebrate the holiday with my family. It has been rainy and cool for the past couple of days and so it was nice to see the sun today. I am so grateful that we have a day that is set aside to honor our men and women in the armed services. I know we should never take for granted, the sacrifices that they have made, along with their families. So I am truly thankful this day for those who have served in the past and those who are serving now. We are so blessed to live in the LAND OF THE FREE!

Now this is the third time I have written this blog, every time I try to go to somewhere else on the Internet to get a photo or a quote, I completely erase my post. And since my niece isn't here tonight I will have to go without a quote. For me that is hard, because it is one of my favorite things.

I hope that each of you were able to celebrate it in some way. I am not feeling too well tonight, probably because I was up and about with the kids all day. My cute daughter-in-law and I were talking today and she mentioned that I didn't look tired or sick at all. I told her that I work hard not to look that way. My dear grandmother used to say "YOU SHOULD NEVER LOOK AS BAD AS YOU FEEL!" ( I guess that will have to be my quote for the day) I am trying to enjoy every minute with my family but today, I probably over did it. How I long to be normal though, meaning able to do all that the family does instead of always sitting out and watching, or participating and then paying for it for DAYS!
Oh well, I need to take this tired body to bed. Thanks so much for your love and support and may we all remember today and every day, how blessed we are TO LIVE IN AMERICA!
Good night and take care!
