Ta-Ta Tuesday - I'm outta here! But don't forget....

Hey dolls!  Today is my Friday of the week.  I know, I know...go ahead.  Hate me!  But, don't be too envious...I am just heading to Oklahoma!  Ha.  (Now you Oklahomians don't take offense, m-kay!?)

Our gorgeous, beautiful, smart niece is graduating high school and we are going to show our support and spend time with the other SEVEN cousins.  Remember them?  How could you forget?!?  Er, how could I forget!

With that said, I hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend...and truly remember to celebrate it!  And remember why we are celebrating!  And because of WHO!!!!!  Because of those still serving and all of the VETERANS!!!!

It is the
VETERAN


not the preacher,


who has given us freedom of religion.



It is the
VETERAN


not the reporter,


who has given us freedom of the press.


It is the
VETERAN,


not the poet,


who has given us freedom of speech.


It is the
VETERAN,


not the campus organizer,

 

who has given us freedom to assemble.



It is the
VETERAN,


not the politician,

Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the
VETERAN

who salutes the Flag...

It is the
VETERAN

who serves under the Flag!


The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.

as usual a great post with so much feeling it just makes my heart smile! I agree, we celebrate the day but we often forget why. I have a niece serving in Afghanistan and I'm so in awe of her:) Enjoy your vacay and the graduation!

As an Okie, I hope you enjoyed your visit to our state.

I say if you're spending time with family/friends, the state doesn't really matter!
