Memorial Day

According to Wikipedia :

"Memorial Day is a United States Federal Holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action."

A lot of people, including me, think of Memorial Day as the start of summer :) People go camping, BBQ (which we are doing at Auntie D's on Sunday!) and enjoy the long weekend.

However, despite all that, Memorial Day is one of 4 days a year that punch me deep in the gut and remind me that, although my life is extremely blessed, there is still a piece missing...a part of my heart that will always be broken.

Missing you this "Memorial" Day and every day....
