Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. A poem that I found, The Author is unknown...

Honor Earned
Here we stand to honor our dead;
To remember them as these words are read.
To give that honor that they have earned;
Is a lesson taught, a lesson learned.
These men and women who gave their all;
And answered God’s hallowed call.
And even though we are apart
They live on in our minds and heart.
So, bow your head and let us pray;
God bless them all on this day.

I hope that you all had a PEACEFUL Memorial Day.
Let us not ever forget...
Memorial Day Blessings to you, ~Tonya

Happy Memorial Day, Tonya! That is such a nice poem you shared. We did have a pretty peaceful day at our place. We took the kids to the parade in town in the morning and then took off to Cracker Barrel for a late breakfast. I think it was good for the kids ... because we stood and clapped for about 15 minutes as all the Veterans from WWI to present marched (or rode) past us.

Just stopping in for a hello ... and to tell you I love your latest trio of fairies, too!
