I was feeling a little patriotic today due to it being Memorial Day. Normally, I would think of this holiday as a day off work with pay and a day for picnics and fireworks.
This year I can really appreciate the true meaning ....
My youngest brother has been serving in Iraq since October. I feel bad that he doesn't get to spend the holiday with his wife and babies.
Take a moment to remember our soldiers and be thankful for all the freedoms that we are so lucky to have in our country.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
