Remembering those who sacrificed it all.

I never know what to say or how to say what I feel on Memorial Day. I don't think anything I could come up with could even begin to explain how much gratitude I have for all of service men and women, and their families, who have sacrificed everything for the rest of us!

Thankfully, I have friends who write much more eloquently than I do. Please head on over to read Barb at Grit's and Glamour's beautifully written tribute!



  1. Robin, the fact that you remember the meaning of Memorial Day is a tribute in itself. And I agree, Barb's post is beautifully expressed. Have a wonderful day with your family. Kathy

  2. God bless our heroes in uniform. I can scarcely think about them without feeling the tears well up.

    And God bless you, my friend, today and everyday.



  3. I watched the the ceremony held in Washington DC, on TV. I was moved to tears. I, for one, take so much for granted. I need to pause more often to be grateful for those who gave so much.

  4. great minds think alike! that's exactly what i did.. linked to barb's. :)
    sorry to hear you've sworn off nascar..but hoping all will end well with jeremy's situation and you'll be back in the redneck fold! heehee

    xoxo -Tracie

  5. Robin ~ thank you for visiting and your comment. I am sure we were at the same Bass Pro Shop you are talking about. Leeds! In the middle of nowhere!

    Have a good week!

  6. I would love to visit Arlington on Memorial Day. I am sure it is an amazing site. God has been so good to us and we have so much to be thankful for each and every day. Barb did write an excellent tribute. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I do so appreciate you taking the time to write.
