Today is Memorial Day; Monday, May 25th. Traditionally it’s consider the beginning of Summer…BBQ’s, a long weekend, and great sales.
I, however, prefer to remember those men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for this great country – their lives. I am truly grateful to them; you and I benefit from the Freedoms we have as Americans because so many have fought and died to preserve our Constitution and The Bill of Rights.
I haven’t personally known anyone who died while serving in the military. I’ve read lots of stories and viewed many movies – from the Revolutionary to Civil to WWI and WWII to Korea to the wars which have taken place in my lifetime. I admire the courage, the conviction, and the conflict of the American soldier – whether he willingly went off to fight or not. The heartache of leaving those he loved. The fear he had to face. The anger towards death & evil he witnessed.
I live in a community where I see soldiers almost every day. A week or so ago I thought to myself, “how can I express my gratitude?” And so I decided that I would like to bless a woman who knows the pain of losing her husband because he gave the greatest gift he could give…his life for others. I can never express fully how grateful I am, but I hope my small gesture will help in the healing process – I am offering a complimentary Relaxation Facial (60 minutes).
Please share….I have mentioned this on my Facebook page, but so far I haven’t heard from anyone. She may contact me at 360-381-3989, texting ok.
