Soooo much more than hot dogs and hamburgers..

Memorial Day..tomorrow is...

and we've taken the opportunity to not leave town, but to stay home and get some work done.

Mr. B in the yard ..working on his curb appeal project....and me in the disaster area art room...

But we can't forget to remember why we can have the lives we have..


Because of the sacrifice of so many men and women..


I know, I know. You've heard that a lot lately..but have we made our voices heard to those that matter? Hope so..



So, Brian, Alyssa, Connor, Emily and Ella...these are the just a few of the many, many people we need to thank..and just a few of the people since them and to come..protecting you and your way of life..

And during war times. everyone tried to help..and we need to remember that now..


Thank you..thank you thank you thank you..

The words are just not big enough..

Be safe, be happy, be full...


..and try to think of a world with OUT war..

Just...


Happy, save and grateful Memorial Day to you..

I pray someday that we will have a world without war, but with so many countries built on hate, I can only imagine. Great post Colleen, enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Thank you; this was a nice tribute to our soldiers. My Uncle is currently fighting for us in Iraq, and I've had family who fought in previous wars. I don't agree with war, but I'm a very strong supporter of our troops.

Hope that you had a blessed Memorial Day. One day there will be no more war and when that day comes, it will be the end. (To loosely quote LOST. ;D) I like to imagine it often. Thank you for the sweet reminder.
