Today’s post is a replay from last Memorial Day weekend…

On this Memorial Day weekend, let us not forget those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live freely in this beautiful country.   May God bless our nation’s heroes buried at Arlington National Cemetery; and we must not forget those who have been wounded and struggle every day to live as they did before they served our country.  If you have served in one of the branches of our military, thank you!

My friend Jim recently posted on Facebook, “… every Memorial Day, I go to Arlington National Cemetery… and get to hang out with our Nation’s heroes.”  Beautifully said Jim, and thank you for allowing me to use your two photographs.



From Arlington National Cemetery, the Washington Monument can be seen in a distance.  We truly have a beautiful nation’s capital.



The sun shining through our backyard American flag was so beautiful that I stopped cutting the grass and grabbed my camera.  I’m so glad that I took the time to appreciate this beautiful sight!



Our bluebird is feeling very patriotic on this Memorial Day.  He loves sitting on the flag pole watching his surroundings almost as much as Bill enjoys photographing him.

Blessings to you this day as you spend time with family and friends reflecting on our many heroes.  I am heading off for a run, and then I’ll spend my day preparing to host family and friends for our annual barbeque.
