..Memorial Day

..well, it's Memorial Day weekend and I just don't have the "spirit" as everyone else does. I did get to leave work early and I did have happy hour drinks with my friend, but still no excitement about the extended weekend (yet). It will be 6 months without the love of my life and it has been taking a toll on my emotions. I miss him so very much and I "on purpose" did not make any big plans so I can relax this weekend. I wish I was home back in Texas with my loved ones. :(

I hope everyone remembers what this weekend, this Memorial Day is truly about. I think its great to have a extra day off work, some have a day off of school, great sales at the stores, bbq's, etc... Memorial Day Weekend, ask any Military Families who has lost a family member to a war or a person who has a loved one overseas and they will most likely tell you that Memorial Day is not a celebration. Its not a happy day. It was not intended to be the unofficial start to summer or a big day for race fans. Its a somber occasion meant to HONOR the men and women who have died in service for our country. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!

May Part 1

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING FOR MAY SO FAR...... the Month of May, I have gone to a birthday party one of many with my Army Family, my very first Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, participated in my first Relay for Life (crazy hat lap) and walked the 10K for the Red Cross (my 2nd 10K)!!!! And this is just the first part of the month! Can't wait to see what the second half has in store for me!
