Sunflower Celebration: Day 11

Happy Memorial Day. I am grateful for the time to pause and remember.

My Dad’s uncle Larry served and died in World War II. It was my grandma’s baby brother and she never stopped telling us his story.

My Nephew was a member of the national guard who was deployed to Iraq. He met his wife because her fiancee was serving in Iraq and was killed in action.

My cousin had a son serving in the Navy who died six weeks ago in a tragic accident.

Even for those of us who do not have immediate family serving, we know and love those who do have family members who have served and given their lives.

I am grateful for a day to stop and think and thank. Happy Memorial Day.
