(Mondays are Lynn Miles Peisker days at The Daily Blur. Lynn serves as the Executive Sister and Chief Plate Spinner at the Imagination Advisory Group. Check out her growing archive of posts here.)
I’m going to interrupt your regular programming at The Daily Blur for this moment of pride and reflection.
This is our dad in 1956 at Camp Pendleton, California, during his service to our country as a United States Marine. Today we honor him and all who serve and have served our county in the U.S. Armed Forces. We are blessed to spend Memorial Day with our dad, but we also pause to remember and honor those for whom today is a day of remembrance and loss.
Tomorrow evening, our youngest child will graduate from high school. We will celebrate that event with friends and family and honor his accomplishments. But more importantly, we will honor his character. Like his grandfather, he is a man who places high importance on service to others.
We are experiencing a special kind of gratitude today and counting our blessings.
May your heart be full today as you honor those who serve.
