This coming Monday, in the United States, we take time to remember all the men and women who protected our country and are protecting us now. My parents and grandparents called it Decoration Day. A Civil War General, General John Logan, thought it would be a good way to unite our country once again after war. He decided on May 30th as the day to honor our Veterans because flowers would be in bloom all across America. In 1971 Memorial Day became a federal holiday, giving us all a three-day weekend.
So whether you are enjoying a family picnic or taking advantage of the great shopping sales or just relaxing on a paid day off, take time to remember those who gave their lives so we could enjoy our freedom.
I plan on doing a little of everything this weekend. I am going shopping today, JoAnn’s of course! And, a few other places too. After that I will be spending time with family, cooking out, playing games, reading, and of course, working on projects. Enjoy your weekend! I will be back here on Tuesday.
