IN MEMORY~HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

Memorial Day Graphics at WishAFriend.com


With the holiday weekend here, and the time, we as Americans kick off the start of Summer, let us not forget the many men and women that have served our country strong so we may have the freedoms to enjoy a weekend like this. We can not forget the sacrifices they made for the cost of freedom. And, for our loved ones passed on within families so dear, may we remember with joy happy and memorable times we spent together.

As we fly our flags high this weekend and beyond, I wish for you a safe, fun and special Memorial Day.


Blessings to all as I see you here June 1st for the drawing of my Spring Giveaway. Any comments and followings will still enter you before the 1st. Thank you and Good Luck!

Smiles and Sunshine, Celestina Marie

I have always felt funny each time I wish someone a Happy Memorial Day because it is a "somber" day in many ways. My daughter went to heaven as you know and I would hate for my only CHILD I HAVE LEFT...A SON...DIE ON THE BATTLE GROUND FOR PEOPLE WHO TAKE THEIR FREEDOM FOR GRANTED. Many, many mothers have given up children, husbands, dads, uncles, grandparents and so forth.
Yesterday my DH and I went to Amy's resting place. People and flags every where. My DH and I laughed and cried as we decorated Amy's resting place for the holiday. I watched a little frail man walk ever so slowly up to a grave and placed a single red rose...I know in my heart it had to be his beloved wife...I watched one gentlemen walk to different graves, stand at attention and tip his hat...it was stunning to me
SO MANY PEOPLE BRINGING DIFFERENT THINGS TO PLACE AT THEIR LOVED ONES RESTING PLACE TO SAY:
I LOVE YOU
I WON'T EVER FORGET YOU
THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT WERE SPECIAL TO YOU AND I WOULD GIVE TO YOU IF YOU WERE HERE ON EARTH AND NOT IN HEAVEN
EVERY TIME THE WIND SOFTLY BLOWS IT REMINDS ME OF YOUR GENTLENESS
WHEN I SEE THE BLUE SKY, I REMEMBER HOW DEEP BLUE YOUR EYES WERE
WHEN I SEE PUFFY CLOUDS I REMEMBER HOW WHEN WE TRAVELED WE WOULD LOOK AT THE different cloud shapes AND MAKE UP A STORY ABOUT CATS, DOGS, ANGELS,DINOSAURS, AND ANY WHERE OUR IMAGINATION TOOK US.
YOU ARE A BLESSING CELESTINA MARIE AND I AM SO GLAD WE ARE DEVELOPING A FRIENDSHIP.
HUGS AND BLESSINGS
I THOUGHT OF YOU AND YOUR MOTHER YESTERDAY
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Beautiful post. Great sound track.

In honor of Memorial Day weekend, I volunteer at an annual Survivors gathering in Washington DC and try to spread the word about TAPS (www.taps.org).

Founded and run by military women TAPS offers hope, healing and resources to military survivors.

Please remember those they leave behind.
