Memorial Day is Monday and in the midst of all of the barbeque’s and celebrations, let us remember what the day is really all about.
Hundreds of thousands of men and women are deployed all over the world to protect our country. Their families are left behind sacrificing their time, their birthdays, and their holidays with mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and in some cases grandparents, as well as, friends.
I speak from experience, many of my friends and relatives have served and continue to serve in the military and I can tell you they are never far from my mind; especially when I see how their deployment affects their families.
So, this weekend, I ask that you take a minute and think of all of these people, including many of our blogging friends and their family members and pray for their safety while they are deployed.
Let us hope and pray they all come home safe to the welcoming arms of their parents, and children and their friends.
To our troops in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and the Coast Guard, I salute you and thank you!
