Happy Memorial Day Weekend

"Thank you" will never seem enough to say to all the military service men and women who have served and sacrificed their lives to keep our country free and the world at peace as much as possible!

Thank you to my Dad, a WWII veteran, now 88 years young, my brother Bob (VietNam and Desert Storm vet), all my uncles, cousins and nephews and extended family members who have served in the various military branches and continue to do their patriotic duty and fulfill their commitment.

Thank You, God, for bringing both Dad and Bob home from the wars, for blessing Dad with Mom for 64 years, and for our family, our circles of friendships, and for Your care, love, and protection! We pray for protection for Rocky and Brian, for Paul and John, as they serve in the National Guard, the Rangers, the Air Force, and the Navy. God bless the USA!

God is so good. I have so much for whom and for which to be thankful. I fall asleep saying my thank-You prayers, and when I wake up, I continue them!

On Monday, we'll be visiting the local cemetery, hearing the gun salute and the band's patriotic marches, and remembering all the fallen heroes. With MANY thanks!

Please thank your family for me, too! It is because of men and women who are brave and willing to make the sacrifices a military life requires that we are free.

Hugs!
