Figuring it out one day at a time.

Happy Memorial Day!

1 Comment

I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Memorial Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.  ~Benjamin Harrison

  1. Loved the quote! We celebrated with our flag proudly waving and joined the Legion in honoring those who served! Brought tears to my eyes when the WWII vets stood and saluted the flag -WOW! And, what an adorable Grandson I have- love the watermelon pictures!!! Grandma loves Lincoln!
