Traditionally, summer kicks off in the US with Memorial Day Weekend. Most schools are out. Graduations have been happening. Pools are opening. Vacations are beginning.
Lots of people forget, though, that our Memorial Day is meant to honor fallen servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. Many communities will be holding parades and ceremonies today to pay tribute for those who gave that ultimate sacrifice. Cemeteries have been spruced up and flags have been erected on the graves of local fallen heroes.
Today is a great day for kicking off summer, but let's remember, too, to thank those who fought for our abundant freedoms.
In my little world, I am reading instead of sewing. The book club book is All the Things We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I am about halfway through it and am eager to get back to it.
So until I get this book finished, I am not sewing. And I have so much I could be working on, too. Ah, well . . .
Happy Quilting, Friends!
