This Memorial Day…

Although Memorial Day has become known as a lot of things — the kick-off of summer and the grill season among others — it is, most importantly, a day to remember those who have willingly sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy these things with our families in freedom.

Whatever’s on your plate today, I hope that you’ll take time to remember those who have died, to pray for comfort and peace for their families and to share the meaning of the day (and rich history of our country) with your kids.

I know it’s a reminder I myself need as well!
