In memory

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. A day to remember with gratitude the sacrifices of those who serve our country, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Looking for something to do today? Go to a cemetery and place flags or flowers on the graves of soldiers. Pick up the tab for a military family you see at a local restaurant. Pray for the safety of those currently on duty in our military. Read this post, then watch the movie "Taking Chance," and be humbled and grateful.

Today I am feelling especially blessed and grateful, after watching all the violence (on CNN) around the world. We live in a beautiful, caring country. Oh, and Amy...my biggest vice...ice cream!
