I’ve always loved Memorial Day, and for a lot of reasons.
It’s a day off for me. Firing up the grill and eating too much. Spending time with family and friends. Relaxing. Officially saying goodbye to the fickleness of spring and hello to summer’s reliable warmth.
But Memorial Day is also more. Much more. I’ve always realized that. But this past Saturday, I knew it.
I’m posting at Katdish’s blog today. I invite you there so you can meet my friend Kirk, who has changed quite a bit over the past four years. Time can do that. So can war.
Have a blessed day, everyone. And don’t forget to pause in this peaceful day to remember those
who secured that peace for us.
