Mama Braggin' Monday - Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day everyone.

The kids have been at Nanny's (Mike's mom) house this weekend and later today we are all going to a baseball game.
I have mama braggin' things to share, but they will wait as we pause this day to remember the many sacrifices made by those in the armed forces for our freedoms.


I had a friend once say to me that she would feel like a failure as a mother if her son chose to go into the service. I tell you, I couldn't feel more the opposite. And, you know, Nathan says that he wants to fly helicopters when he grows up, so...

We're headed out to a baseball game today. Do you have any plans?

Well, whatever you are doing today, be safe and remember why we have this holiday.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday.

Donna,

My Father was killed in Viet Nam in 1967. My FATHER gave me back his dogtag in November 2005. I have a son in law that served 1 tour in Iraq.

Today is a day to celabrate and remember the price paid for our freedom to go to baseball games, allow or children to stay with grandparents. And to agree or disagree on all things political.

Praise God for our men and women that choose to serve.

If my son decides to serve our country, I would feel all kinds of things, I'm sure, yet failure would not be on that list. Thankful isn't a big enough word for all who have served and now serve.
