On this Memorial Day, a traditionally picnicky, grill-outing, pool opener kind of day, I thought I’d expand the “memorial” beyond remembering those who died in service of our country.
I don’t mean to take anything away from the military this day is meant to honor, I just thought maybe in addition, we could take a moment and remember something positive about others who have passed. So many have passed.
Share a story, a laugh, a cry.
Remember good things about those you are missing.
Invite their memory to join in the celebration.
Eat corn and burgers and chips.
Lather up with sunscreen and bug spray.
Make new memories to be shared one day.
