To-Do List for Memorial Day Weekend
Take white pants out of storage – Hooray!
Wash towels and bathing suits – sort through to see what still fits the kids
Trim the hedges by the fence
Move the paving stones, call landscaper to see if he wants them
(Check to see if we’re low on relish!)
Honor those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
Reach out to the families of the fallen.
Remember those who are in harm’s way.
Do something to help their families here at home.
Teach our children what true sacrifice means.
Show them what honor, gratitude and respect are all about.
“The only person standing is the man in a wheelchair.”
