Remembering Our Heroes and a Meal Idea Monday

27 May

It’s a beautiful Monday, and one that I’m thankful for. Today on Memorial Day, we get to honor all of the men and women who have given their lives serving our country in the US Military. And it’s not only those men and women I will be honoring and thinking about today… it’s their families. They have made one of the biggest sacrifices I know of, and they think of and miss them each day. I cannot imagine how hard that must be, and how much they miss their loved ones.

I’d like to even take it one step further. Today our family will be thinking of and honoring those who have given their lives while serving their communities as Firefighters or Police Officers. They are true heroes as well. And to their families and friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart- you are heroes too!! Thank you. So very much. You are loved, appreciated, and cared about by so many.

Today is a day to get together with those you are close with, think of the fallen soldiers and their families, and then be thankful for what God has given you. We all have so much to be thankful for!

Here’s a few recipes that I found on The Food Network for Crunchy Lemonade Drumsticks and Antipasto Salad… could be great to make for dinner to share with your friends tonight!

Also, here’s a video that I wanted to share with you as we honor our fallen heroes…it’s about an incredible woman who’s husband was killed in Afghanistan, and her story. This is what Memorial Day is all about.
