Yesterday was Memorial Day, so as we do every year, my DH and I made our way over to the services to remember the veterans who died fighting for our county.
I've always found this a hard holiday. I certainly don't see it as a celebration. I view it as a day of mourning. Many of my family have served in the military. Many are serving now.
On Memorial Day I think about my family and my neighbors families and all that we have lost. Not a happy occasion.
But a good time to reflect and remember.
