We Remember

Each year for Memorial Day we head to a cemetery to be uplifted and reminded of how blessed we are to live in this country.  Over the years we have been inspired by several wonderful tributes given on Memorial Day morning.

 Chloe and her momma listening to the tribute.

 After the kids ran over and asked if they could have the empty shells that were fired off.  The kids all thought it was super cool.

We feel so grateful for those that have fought for our country.  Memorial Day has also become special to us as we think of loved ones that have passed on.  We always visit the grave site of sweet Elyse and leave a token of love behind.  I have felt the comforting love and peace from the Savior through times of heartache.

Thanks so much for thinking of our sweet little girl on this day! I often think of Sara's role in softening your heart in a special way that blessed so many. Till you meet again...
