Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Read more about the history of this day at  http://www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html
I have always made it a point to shake the hands of the service men I run into and tell them, “God bless you” as well. It always seems to bring a smile to their faces and gets me a “thank you” that feels heart-felt. On this day of honor, I hope they all know that they are appreciated!
One song always comes to mind….. Toby Keith’s ode to the American Soldier;

Sing along, sing it proud and sing it strong!!

Im just tryin to be a father
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,

Everything to everyone.
Up and at ’em bright and early,
I’m all business in my suit,
Yeah, I’m dressed for success from my head down to my boots,
I don’t do it for money, there’s still bills that I can’t pay,
I don’t do it for the glory, I just do it anyway,
Providing for our future’s my responsibility,
Yeah I’m real good under pressure, being all that I can be,
And I can’t call in sick on Mondays when the weekends been to strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready when the wolf growls at the door,
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady, hey I’m true down to the core,
And I will always do my duty, no matter what the price,
I’ve counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice,
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dyin’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with an honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.
I’m an american soldier, an american,
Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty’s in jeopardy I will always do what’s right,
I’m out here on the front lines, sleep in peace tonight.
American soldier, I’m an American,
An American,
An American Soldier

A very thankful Lady Godive on wheels…proud to be an American!
