“We cannot change our memories, but we can change their meaning and the power they have over us” --------------------David Seamands
All along the road today, Mom and I saw the evidence of family. Family reunions, families working together in the fields, family time getting ready to happen as motorists and motorcycle riders headed toward something fun. Memorial Day is a gentle holiday, its roots in the honoring of Civil War heroes, and its blooms in full scale honoring of traditions and family memories. We have floral baskets for the cemeteries, and we will deliver those tomorrow afternoon. Tonight... a little full-ish moon and some quiet time to think. May you enjoy a blessed and happy AND safe holiday weekend.
If you didn't catch my nostalgic reminiscence of Memorial Days that I wrote last year, you might like to catch up on some cemetery secrets HERE.
