In the month of May, we celebrate motherhood and remember those who died while serving our country. And are we ever grateful for both!
Moms are an amazing bunch! She’s there to kiss away a boo-boo or dry away the tears from a first love gone south. She makes our favorite meals and tucks us in at night. She stays up way past bedtime to help us get that school project finished that she asked us repeatedly if we had finished two days before. Yes, she’s got our back, she’s our own personal cheerleader in life and always makes us feel special. To my mom, Mary, and all the moms and mother figures out there, we are grateful for your love and support!
To many, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to summer. It is when many folks make their first trek to the beach in the new year. No one loves a beach trip more than me, but we must not let that overshadow this very important day set aside to remember! I give my eternal gratitude to the countless men and women who gave their lives in order that we may preserve the freedoms we enjoy today!
