Today I'm thinking about...
1. my cousin Kyle.He was killed in a car accident in 1990 at the age of 17. Today would've been his 38th birthday. While I was only 9 when he passed away, I still think about him and miss him every day. I can't help but wonder what he would be like as a 38 year old.
I can't wait to see him again one day. What a day of rejoicing that will be!
2. Every single person who has ever served or who is currently serving in the U.S. Miltary.
Particularly these 2 great men, who both served in WWII:
- My Dada (deceased in 2006)and
-my Papaw (deceased in 1987)
pictured with my cousin, Adelia on the left and me on the right...
I absolutely could not have been blessed with 2 greater, more respected men than my grandfathers.
I write this post not to sadden you, but to make you stop and:
a). Enjoy every second with those you love and
b). Stop what you're doing tomorrow and THANK A SOLDIER!
If you're in the military, and you just so happen to be reading this post--THANK YOU and
Happy Memorial Day to you. God bless the USA!
