Here in the U.S. it is Memorial Day.

I don’t get into BBQ’s, cookouts or picnics.
I know that some communities have fireworks displays.

I don’t intend to do any of that today.

This is what Memorial Day is about:


Death and sacrifice.

I’m not a flag-waver. I’m not a person who wears her patriotism on her sleeve. But I am grateful.

Off to spend some time this morning with our farmer friend and family. Their son is newly stationed in Afghanistan. That is a way to spend Memorial Day.
