Aww the "kick off to the summer" is here. (If only summer weather would actually grace us in Montana!). BBQ, Friends, good times..
Today is not National BBQ day though. Don't forget the men and women who have fought for our freedom here in America.
When I think of all the brave souls who gave their lives so I could be free in this country, my throat gets a lump in it.
Little known fact: I joined the military straight out of high school. I didn't stay in and got out before my basic training was over. It is so hard to be in the military. I admit, I couldn't cut it.
I am so grateful for those that could make the cut though. Without them, I am sure my life would be hugely different here.
So, today, while I am about to leave and go have a picnic under the cloudy skies here in Montana, I want to thank those that helped give me that freedom.
Happy Memorial Day!
