Wow! We just passed 8,000 followers this morning. Welcome to all the new followers.
This last weekend was Memorial Day weekend. We honored all our brothers and sisters who have served, and are serving.
I got to thinking about that. It is great to honor them, but what about the ones who are sitting in trenches.? How about those who are in hospitals all over the world? Many are alone. Many are battling depression, anxiety, fear, and are wondering what tomorrow will bring.
We can’t forget them. They are our heroes too.
I also thought of the loved ones at home who are praying that their son or daughter may be kept from harm, or will recover from their wounds.
One thing I always remembered as a service member, was how important my family was to me while I was in South Korea. Talk about lonely! Yes, I was surrounded with many other service members, but they were not family.
I wished I could have seen them just for a moment. There wasn’t any Skype, or Zoom back then. No cell phones. Just letters from home, and those were very few.
It was hard at best to be content.
If you have loved ones in harm’s way. May God bless them and keep them safe.
It seems to me that many may just take the weekend as an extra tme to play. Too many don’t even know what the day means. Yes, it good to show recognition to family who have passed, but it is also for those who helped you have a comfortable life, and have freedom.
I am a die heart, old veteran, who always cries when I hear Taps. I heard it several times this weekend, and it tore me up. Taps is the final call for many. May they rest in peace.
Here’s hoping that you had a fabulous weekend with loved ones either on the phone, or through Zoom, etc.
I really enjoy sharing with you through these posts!!
