This day means many things to many people. A time to remember those that gave their lives for this country’s freedom, a time to remember those family and friends that are no longer with us, or just enjoying a three-day weekend! So many people have touched my life, and I am a better person today because of their past influence. I miss them. I think of them often.
I invite you to add your comment here about one person who has touched your life. Who were they? What did they do for you? I would love to share in your memory. We do not mourn their loss today, but rather celebrate their life. Remember them with the joy and passion that that loved you with.
I remember my great grandma Briscoe, and smile at my early childhood memories of playing in her yard in the bright summer days, tickled at watching the magical dragonflies dart in and out of her tall and colorful hollyhocks.
