Remembering Memorial Day

I started to write the usual "Happy Memorial Day" but its not as happy for a lot of families who have lost loved ones in the recent foreign conflicts. There are enough veterans in our area that Memorial Day has an even stronger poignancy when you know many military families mourning over their departed heroes, remembering beloved grandfathers & uncles, and coveting prayers for their loved ones who are today, or will be again tomorrow, at very real risk.



Our thanks to all the veterans and soldiers who have fought to keep us free!

Wonderful post! I have a brother in law that just got back from Iraq the beginning of this year so this all hits close to home.

I read your profile and we have a lot in common. I have been married for 19 years to my wonderful husband, am the same age as you, and I live in VA! Only, I have 6 kids and not 2.

I have a blog on homeschoolblogger.com/vahomeschoolmom Come for a visit sometime.

Blessings,
