Happy Memorial Day!!

Today is the last Monday in May and as such, it is Memorial Day.  Memorial day is a day to stop and remember all the men and women who have fought and died while serving in the Armed Forces.  Most of us can look back and identify someone in our family who has died fighting for this country.  Many families use this day off school and work to visit their families and spend time with loved ones, while others would rather spend a quiet day at home.  My immediate family usually gets together and we spend the weekend enjoying each other’s company.  Sometimes we have a cookout and have our neighbors over, while other times we go out to eat (though it's normally really crowded!!).  

If you traveled to visit your family for this special weekend I wish you a safe journey home.  I hope each of you has a wonderful day and that we all take some time to remember the true reason for this very special holiday!

What do YOU do for Memorial Day Weekend?
