|Happy Memorial Day! (At least for those in the United States!) The last Monday of May, we celebrate those who have lost their lives in defense of our country. Group dinners and “National Anthems” abound. It’s often a great day full of fun and sun.
First of all, let me start by saying a huge THANK YOU to any of you who are active or retired military of any kind. Or those who support those who have been in our military. Either one is a tough job but so necessary and we are so grateful for you!
Several members of my family have served, but none in recent years. My grandfather was active during WWII. He was drafted into the Army and served on the railroad. My husband’s grandfather also served during that same war and served as an administrative assistant. My father-in-law was in the coast guard for several years and served during the Vietnam era.
Their histories are amazing! And I am so grateful for all they did and all the others did/do as well. So, for those who can, kick back with a root beer and a good book and savor the fact that we can do so. And! I can’t offer you a soda, but I can help with the good book! 😉 I’ve got some fun new releases for you below. Take a peek and tell me what you think!
