It's great to have fun, and it's perfect to do on Memorial day, but do we remember that it's not about sales, or family, or an awesome barbecue? That it's not just a hoorah for America or even for all those who have served?

HERE and HERE with our scouts in San Francisco. I loved that so much and really miss it! I wish I could do something like that today, but pregnancy sickness is limiting our big activities today. But it doesn't have to be big. We can take time to remember them, pray, think about what they died FOR. We can actually say thank you to those men and women and their families who serve. There are many ways!
"We are not to expect to be translated from despotism to liberty in a featherbed."-Thomas Jefferson
"Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood. "
