It seems like everybody and their mama is reminding you that today isn’t just about barbecuing with friends, that there is a purpose to this holiday. I feel when you are a part of the military community that this thought is never really that far from your mind.
I feel blessed that my sailor is home safe with us today, that we aren’t worrying about his well being or safety. That he is able to be here with his family. That I don’t have to raise my children without a father.
I am so very, very thankful for all of the military members far from home who are doing their part in keeping us safe. I am so very grateful for all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives for our country.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
I was going to post something about this on FB and blog about it, but I didn’t. Somehow I get offended when all these people who don’t usually act like they care, (not you, of course), start caring about the military. Some of “friends” that posted things like “today is not just for a bbq”, I wanted to comment, “and what would you know about it?”
Yeah, I ignored it on FB, but it was really irritating me all of the super patriotic people who came out of the woodwork on Memorial Day. Wow, just because you shared a photo of a soldier, you REALLY must care!
