Here in New Hampshire, we often take some time on this day to visit our cemeteries, taking plants or silk flowers, or even a jar of lilacs, to decorate the graves of our loved ones. This morning, Mr. T and I took a hanging plant and a shepherd's hook to place at the grave site of my parents and siblings. There was a lot of coming and going at the cemetery today. In fact, heading out toward the gate, we met my aunt and uncle coming in.
Later today, we will be enjoying a cookout with our daughter and family. I'm bringing a roasted sweet potato salad and a strawberry rhubarb pie.
We hope that you've been enjoying the day with your family and friends, with parades, picnics, cookouts, or other activities, but that you'll take a moment sometime today, and remember the brave men and women who gave their all so that we could be free. If you have young children, take time to remind them of what this holiday is really all about.
And don't forget to pray for those equally brave men and women who are serving our country in difficult places right now.
