Memorial Day

I'm never sure whether I should say 'Happy' Memorial Day. For some, the remembering is full of grief and pain. But that's not to say we should not look back and appreciate the sacrifices made so we can live free.

My aunt Wanda writes a lovely blog that I enjoy reading. Her post today was a "Memorial Day Tribute to Roy Robertson." That's my grandfather, and though I knew of his military service, she gives many details of which I was not aware, and am glad to know. Thank you, Wanda, for such a fitting post to honor him.

Both my grandfathers, at least one great-grandfather, and my dear father-in-law all served our country in the military, to name a few. I am very proud of each and every one of them.
