WE BRING YOU A SMILE
A RE-POST FROM THE ARCHIVE
My grandmother and her sisters used to call it "decoration day," the day you took flowers to decorate the graves. It was always a Memorial Day tradition, to take flowers to the cemetery and to listen to the Indianapolis 500, "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," on the radio.
It is a weekend to remember, not only those who were lost in the service to our nation, or those who served, but to remember all of our family and loved ones.
My father and Mother, pictured above were diligent about remembering. That is probably why, whenever I am in Indiana, I visit the cemetery and place flowers.
This weekend I'm across the country, but I remember those trips over the decades. I also remember generations who now rest in peace, especially brothers John and Jim, taken in their prime.
If you wish, here is a beautiful moment of reflection.
NOW ABOUT SMILES
HERE'S SOMETHING TO PUT A SMILE INTO YOUR WEEKEND. BE SURE TO WATCH THIS.
SEE YOU DOWN THE TRAIL.
