Memorial Day

Tomorrow is  Memorial Day.  In past life it meant I didn’t work or did that day depending on how many people with more time on the job wanted off.  Now that doesn’t matter any more.  Memorial Day is a reminder of those who gave their lives to keep us free.  It is also a time to remember those who are no longer with us.  A little feeling of tears shed internally for loved ones that have past on.

As I sit here I remember the father of my children who past almost 46 years ago.  I also remember the man who took over the job of helping raise those children. My youngest was 2 years old when I married Jay.  He stepped in and helped raise my 3 children.  But he has past also.

So memorial Day means many things to me.  Not just a holiday but a reminder of the people in my life that made me whole.

I have people that have been my friends for over 50 years.  I have lost my brothers and am the only one left in that generation.  I have 3 children who are still a part of my life for which I am thankful.

So take time to remember,  to count your blessing, and tell those who are important to you how much they mean to you.
