Memorial Day Weekend: Mixed Emotions

Home » Reflection » Memorial Day Weekend: Mixed Emotions

What mixed emotions I feel after a full Memorial Day weekend! First, I am sending thoughts to all those currently serving in our armed forces, thankful for their service, and sending them Angels to help uplift and protect them. I am sad that they are in harm’s way. May there come a day when we don’t need their service and peaceful resolutions to conflicts are the norm.

I am fondly remembering my great uncle Joe who lost most of his leg to war and my Uncle Rob, the air force pilot, who lost his life in service. I remember Joe’s delight at swimming in our pool where he felt mobile and light again. My mom’s stories of her brother Rob sneaking her onto his airplane for some fun flights were always a hoot.

I am gleeful at hosting our family Memorial Day picnic and welcoming the newest member of our family, week old cousin Chase.

I am touched by the wedding of my friends Carol and Joe this weekend. Weddings remind me of how strong my own marriage is as we have surfed the ups and downs of relationship by being authentic and remembering our love for each other.

May your summer be a time to connect with friends and family, to take breaks and refresh yourselves and to appreciate the glory of Nature.
