2013 Memorial Day-thank you veterans for everything you did and still do!

Today here in the United States is Memorial Day. A time we reflect on the acts of courage and bravery of the men and women in the military.

It used to be honored by volunteers going to the graves of veterans and cleaning them, and placing flowers on them. Or by visiting retirement centers with hand made remembrance red poppy flowers.

Now a days it seems that the Memorial Day weekend is about bbq cookouts and long weekend vacations.

Today, I encourage you, to take a moment and thank a veteran in your family, neighborhood and community. Maybe even get a few remembrance red poppies to hand out too!

Enjoy this beautiful song by the Oak Ridge Boys for Memorial Day And because I firmly believe in the United States being one Nation under God, now enjoy Carrie Underwood and Vince Gil and their standing ovation rendition of "How Great Thou Art". Thank you veterans! Happy Memorial Day! Remember: you are beautiful! Thank you for visiting the blog and check back for promotions and beauty giveaways!
