I am so thankful for my life. This morning, as we attended our town’s Memorial Day parade at a friend’s home located along the route, I teared up as I thought about how lucky we are to live where we live. It was MK’s first parade and although it was a short and simple, to be able to watch her clap for the bands, squeal at the delight of catching candy, and to practically have a conniption over the bubbles that the other kids were blowing, enjoying this lovely tradition is such a privilege. A privilege that I didn’t earn, but other’s have given me by sacrificing so much.
I cannot express how grateful Sean and I are for our freedoms. The idea that we can attend a church of our choice, exercise our opinions freely through our democratic system, and are able to build our family in a manner that we see fit, are not privileges taken for granted.
To all of the men and women in our armed forces that have given us so much….Thank you!
Our Memorial Day Parade Party at a friend’s house!
