We went to the Independence, KY Memorial Day parade today. It was great. The kids got candy and I got to get all emotional about those who served or do serve our country to keep us safe. I found myself fighting tears the entire time...... so thankful... so so thankful for those who serve and have served. What an amazing thing. I am so thankful my family taught be to respect this country and this day... to have it really truly mean something to me. It truly does. My grandma Betty loved America, the flag, and all the holidays that bring recognition to it. I want my girls to love this country and to love freedom. Sometimes it is hard to remember or to imagine what life would be like if these brave men and women had not done what they have done for us.
