Memorial Day

Initially observed in 1868, Memorial Day is a federal holiday remembering and honoring those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Once known as Decoration Day, this day originally honored only those lost while fighting the Civil War. During World War 1, the United states found itself in a major conflict, evolving the holiday to commemorate American military who have lost their lives in any war. 

 Memorial Day is considered the start of the summer season. Many cities across the United States host parades in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Some of the largest parades take place in Washington D.C., Chicago and New York. Many Americans also observe Memorial Day by visiting and taking flowers to cemeteries and memorials. 

However you spend your day, take a minute to think about and thank every lost loved one that passed defending our country. We THANK YOU and your families!

Happy Mothers Day!

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers. It was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother. Her campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday began in 1905, the year her mother passed away. She wanted to honor her mother and she believed a mother is the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world".

I want to say thank you, Mom. Thanks for making bottles and changing diapers. Thanks for kissing boo-boos and telling me bed time stories. Thanks for walks through the woods, building me a tree house and making me green eggs and ham in my Dr. Seuss phase. Thank you for keeping every handwritten, misspelled Mother's Day card I ever made you. Thank you for loving every pet worm I brought to you when I would dig in the yard. Thank you for back to school shopping and that Hilary Duff concert I just HAD to go to. Thank you for teaching me patience and acceptance. Thank you for teaching me how to be a good mother. Thank you for giving me what I needed to be a successful, happy adult. Thank you for loving me.

Anna Jarvis was correct, mothers do more for us than anyone in the world. A truly unconditional love.

This Mothers Day, make sure you tell your mom THANK YOU

Give her a call.

Write her a letter.

Look at old pictures and smile.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all of you hard-working mothers out there!
