I Cannot Forget

This past Saturday my husband told me he wanted to put up a flag on our house. When I agreed, he grabbed the flag and flag post. He had already bought them. My emotions swelled as I watched him put a flag up. It is a clear testament to his patriotism. It is a statement that he remembers. He served in the Army for 10 years. He went to Iraq. He knows people that died for our country.

Today, I cannot forgot those that have died for our country.

I will never forget watching a family play together at Chuck E Cheese before an upcoming deployment... the price that soldier paid for our country and his precious family weigh on my heart this Memorial Day.

I'm thankful for those that serve and praying for those that have lost loved ones.
