The flowers are all blooming and are beautiful. Our roses are in full glory and the tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper and strawberries are already starting to produce. This is the best season in at least five years. The grass is very green, which the horses enjoy, and the sky is crystal clear. Days like this make you forget your troubles and just thank God that days like this happen.
Also remember that this is the Memorial Day weekend. It's a time for fun, family, friends and remembrance of those brave souls who gave their lives so that we might live free. Tomorrow my blog will be a prayer for the souls of those heroes with the hope that we have learned something from their example and are willing to do the same if the call of freedom ever requires it. Whatever trials which we might face, the freedom offered by faith in God provides the willpower to prevail.
On Monday, I will tell a little story about a World War II veteran that I met and his service beyond the call of duty. He is a wonderful man who sacrificed much but is very thankful for being an American.
So there will be no politics on this blog until Tuesday; now is not the time for that. Enjoy your long weekend if you have one and be thankful for having the good fortune to be able to call yourself an American. I'll be back in full political operating mode on Tuesday.
Take care and be safe.
