Again, sorry for the lack of posts.
I've been pretty busy the last few days and spent most of today on the road. I'm writing this from a little bed and breakfast up the the Pennsylvania/New York border. Who knew they had wireless? I was afraid I was going to have to post my Memorial Day thoughts via my phone (which would *not* have been fun :)
I promise to have something up for tomorrow. Didn't get in until tonight and then we had to meet up with some people. Thanks for your patience. May is a hectic month.
In the mean time, here's a little something to get you in the mood for tomorrow via Domestikdiva.
And via Heirborn Ranger, this Memorial Day checklist:
Go look in on your children still asleep
within their bed.
Remind yourself they're safe and warm
because of some long dead.
Go for a walk through cemeteries
lined with little flags.
Take time to ponder homebound heroes
flown in body bags.
Go stand between those granite stones
engraved with names and dates.
Imagine all who died defending
our United States.
Go on and kneel beside a marker
offering a prayer
with gratitude for those who gave their lives
Go home and count your blessings
from the hands of those now gone.
Then vow to the Almighty that their
mem'ry will live on.
Update: I am so behind on my email that I didn't notice a certain Colorado Cat had sent me this first - when I get REALLY behind, I often read from the bottom up (don't ask me to make sense... I am womyn!). At any rate, thanks :)
