Just a really quick post today to wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend! I hope for you it really is a full 3-day weekend. Keep in that not everyone gets the time off. Be appreciative if you do have that lovely three day stretch of time!
Of course I have no idea what your plans are (though I'd love to hear about it!). Maybe your town has an annual parade that has been resurrected now, post pandemic. Or perhaps you like to do a little getaway, a mini-vacation for the long holiday weekend. It could be that you are the one who hosts the barbeque that all of your friends and relative get to enjoy. Or are you a person who is looking forward camping and enjoying nature for 3 days in a row?
Whatever you do and however you spend it, try to spend a few minutes keeping in mind the original intent of the holiday. At least spare a moment of reflection. Remember the origin of this Memorial Day and acknowledge your gratitude for all of the men and women who have served and were willing to put their lives at risk protecting each of us and our country.
Then go out and thoroughly enjoy your weekend. Throw that frisbee, smoke that brisket, watch that movie marathon, read that book hike that trail or whatever else is on your list of fun things to do this weekend!
As always, have fun and be safe. See you on Tuesday.
Hugs all 'round.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
