Isn’t it great to have a built-in holiday for paying tribute to those who fought for our country? I hope your day is full of barbecues, a little rest, and remembering those you’ve loved and lost.
Today I’ll be doing the same thing I do every Memorial Day: Heading to the cemetery for a beautiful brunch while sitting by the graves of our relatives. Every time, I cry just a little for my sweet grandpa, a WWII vet and one of my most important men. I used to think, “Won’t it be great when I can talk about him without crying?” But he’s been gone 16 years, and that day has never come. I miss him, and I guess that’ll never go away. But I am proud, proud, proud to be his granddaughter.
Hope you have a good holiday too. See you Wednesday. •
