Memorial Day Love-List

There’s a host of reasons why we love Memorial Day weekend.  Consider my Top Five Memorial Day LOVE-LIST:

Atlanta Jazz Festival (my personal favorite)

Cookouts w/ great food

Holiday sales at the mall

Slow pace on Monday

Unbelievable weather

I’m sure you have a few others you’d include on your list.  Here’s reality, the reason our country celebrates Memorial Day goes far beyond our relaxing moments during this much anticipated weekend (click HERE for an explanation).  Instead, we should remind ourselves daily that someone actually gave their life in order for us to enjoy the comforts of freedom.  There was a father, a mother, a daughter or a son who considered it an honor to sacrifice all for this country.  May these individuals and their memory lead our Memorial Day LOVE-LIST!
