I hesitate to use the word “normal”, but this weekend feels good! It is our first real holiday since New Year’s Day of 2020.
Yes, it is about the start of the summer, with beer, BBQ and upcoming coming trips to the beach. There is baseball, watermelon and the kids being out of school. Many of these things are happening live and in person this year. But, please do not forget the true meaning of the holiday. People have died serving our country and defending the freedoms we enjoy. This day is set aside to remember and honor those sacrifices. Take a minute to think about that. Make sure your children or grandchildren understand the price of freedom and the reason for the holiday. It is great to see things normalizing. Just make sure that acknowledging the meaning of the holiday is part of your “normal”.
Have a blessed and happy Memorial Day!
