Memorial Day

You were on my mind so much on Memorial Day. Ever since I was a little girl my mom would take me to the cemetery on or near Memorial Day to take flowers to the graves of our loved ones - particularly her grandparents and dad. 

It was interesting to be in Virginia this day. I realized that the holiday is particularly for honoring the people that gave their lives and time in service for our country. I think I'd known that, but never really thought about it. I was grateful to be able to take time to think of those men and women too. 

It was hard not being able to bring anything for your grave that day, but your Grandma Banks was able to bring some flowers. I was so grateful for that. I didn't want it to seem like you are forgotten just because nothing was on your grave, especially because you are far from forgotten. 

Thinking of you on this special day.
