May 30th-Memorial Day
Josh had to work today. He wasn’t planning on it but something came up. So I decided to take the kiddies to the cemetery for Memorial Day. I was overwhelmed all morning, just reflecting and thinking of those who had fought for our freedom, for those who have passed on that I miss so much, and so many thoughts that I can’t put into words. I cried over and over, all morning. I kept thinking of the state of our country….how we have two of the filthiest, immoral people imaginable running for president – who have been chosen by the people….what would Grandma Harris think!? What would The Greatest Generation think of the situation we now find ourselves in?? Did they sacrifice SO MUCH for freedom, just for us to throw it away immediately?!?! Oh, it kills me. Crying all morning. On the way to the cemetery, my emotions almost got the better of me as I explained, in brief segments here and there, where we were going, why we were going today, whose graves we would visit. We took a couple detours as I showed them where Aunt Fawn and Aunt LoRee lived. We went by Grandma Harris’ house and I shared some childhood memories. By the time we were at the cemetery, I was under control and feeling much better. These sweet babies of mine are THE BEST. We had a surprisingly wonderful morning.
As we walked around, my sweet kids would fix the flowers that had fallen over….all of them…
We grabbed some lunch and then grabbed Josh from work to go swimming at Dakota’s house.
Then we went to Cari and Doug’s for KFC. It was a fabulous day!!!
