Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I have much enjoyed my extra long weekend. I am enjoying it even more now that Husband is back from his 24 hour Mountain Bike Race.

I hope you get to enjoy a relaxing day as well! As we eat, swim, and spend time with our families, please remember the importance of this day.

The American Hero
By: Roger Robicheau
The American Hero always comes through
To capture our hearts with a spirit so true
Some proudly are soldiers who march in harm’s way
Insuring our freedom, courageous they stay
While others come forth as civilians so brave
Determined in purpose, so steadfast to save
We should always keep clear a place in our heart
For each has a value beyond precious art
Their duty to country will not be surpassed
Please honor their courage, for some it’s their last
We live in a world which can be hard to bear
Thank God for these people, how greatly they care
Do ponder new heroes and what they will face
And pray for their safety no matter their place
Our heritage brings out the best, we all know
Our great book of heroes is destined to grow
