I always love a Monday that doesn’t feel like a Monday, and this is definitely one such day. I got to sleep in, I don’t have to go to work, and there are some delicious red hot dogs in my future.
Of course, this holiday isn’t about having a long weekend, skipping a day of work, or firing up the barbecue.
Today is about honoring our true heroes. These men and women aren’t around today to enjoy the holiday, but if it weren’t for them, we might not be celebrating, either.
Thank you to everyone who has ever served in this country’s Armed Force, but let us never forget those who gave their lives so that we might know freedom.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers…
As for the day itself, it is raining right now, but I intend to get in some yard work once the skies clear. The mighty Bamboo Forest has returned at the side of the house, so its destruction is priority one for today.
Once that has been destroyed, I need to give the front lawn a trim.
I really do know how to relax and enjoy a holiday, don’t I?
Don’t worry, Modern Philosophers. As I mentioned earlier, red hot dogs are on the menu today along with some potato salad, macaroni salad, and Snapple. I might make a burger and fries tonight as well.
Memorial Day has also always sparked my urge to write more. I believe it’s linked to the memory of Memorial Day being the start of the blockbuster Summer Movie Season.
I’ve seen so many amazing films over the years on this weekend, and it’s always been my dream to have a flick written me open over Memorial Day.
My life is definitely headed in the right direction now, so perhaps this Memorial Day movie dream will become a reality. I certainly believe in myself, and as long as there’s hope, a dream has life.
I hope you all have a Happy Memorial Day. If you have any special plans, please share them in the comments. I love it when the comments are overflowing with your Deep Thoughts…
