I hope that each and every one of you had a weekend filled with celebrations. Our “celebrating” was primarily in the form of working more on our new/old house. But I couldn’t help but pause today as I painted trim and taped walls to just offer a quick prayer of thanks for the men and women who have given their lives in one way or another to uphold my freedoms and security. My father is one of those men. I will always be grateful for their sacrifices.
I think that our new/old house should proudly display a flag. I’ll have to noodle on where to put it, but I never want to forget or take for granted its immense value and symbolism.
