I've had time this weekend to reflect on Memorial Day and what it means. Our men and women in the Armed Forces put their lives on hold, leave their families at home, hopes and dreams are moved to the background, severe injuries, and limbs and life lost - all to protect us. The least we can do is honor them on this special weekend and especially remember those who have lost their lives serving in the military. Take a few minutes this weekend to reflect on what it means to you.
I found the above picture and immediately fell in love with it because it could have been taken in Wisconsin. Deer are apt to show up almost anywhere in our state except perhaps in the downtown area of a large city. The picture in the header of this blog was taken in my backyard when the Magnolia Tree (northern version) was in full bloom. Because the northern version is extremely hardy, the blossoms, branches, etc., are very different from the Magnolia trees in the south. But, we'll take what we can get!
Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post. I will keep the blog and have already changed the name to http://ShufflingAlongWithPDandET.blogspot.com/ It's a little long, but since I'm technology challenged at times, I was afraid to change the title too much for fear of doing something wrong. I didn't want Blogger to somehow get rid of my blog. ha ha - yes, I'm a little paranoid with technology at times.
Sorry I haven't been around to read blogs much lately. I'll start having a little more time now and my plan is to get back into visiting and reading.
Hope you are having a great Memorial Day Weekend.
