This is a weekend of red solo cups, cookouts, cornhole, pools and just good times with friends and families.
It's true meaning lies within the memory of our soldiers and the support for our present day military. Families all around the world, not just within our neighboring states are recognizing this weekends meaning with full hearts. There's much pride in being a military family. Whether you're the spouse, the parent, grandparent, brother or sister, cousin, aunt or uncle you feel the importance of this holiday.
Some families are missing a loved one due to a time of war or peace keeping or even just training.
But some are missing their loved ones due to the ultimate sacrifice. We should take time to treasure what we have and give thanks to what others were willing to give. EACH person who joins the ranks of any branch in our American military makes huge sacrifices for our freedoms. The boots they walk in do not symbolize just a job but a way of life based on deep belief and a courage that knows no bounds.
As we think of those that gave their lives for our freedoms... and those that currently serve
We owe them a cup turned up, a hug, a handshake, a thank you and a moment of silence.
We owe them a flag waiving in the air and the biggest splash from your belly flop or cannon ball.
We thank all of you for your support to our family,
and know that we offer you the same thanks and admiration!!
We're spending today poolside with friends, hoping to convince this little guy that a life jacket is necessary :)
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
