    May we never forget that there is a price to be paid for freedom, and for some that price is life itself. Thank you to all of those who are serving their country and to those who gave themselves on distant shores that we might pursue our dreams in a free country.

    My mother-in-law and I were talking about Memorial Day last night – she said that she just this past weekend realized what it was all about. For her growing up, it was about cook-outs and the first weekend they could head to the beach to camp all weekend. For me, there was the celebratory aspect, but we also made the rounds to all the cemeteries – generations back, we place flowers on graves, cleaned up, paid our respects. In fact, when my mom and I head north next weekend, we will make the rounds to final resting places to remember.

    Even though we are a military family, we’ve not lost anyone to their service, thankfully. I am grateful and thankful for those who are willing to put themselves on the line so we can enjoy the freedoms we currently enjoy.
