Why am I smiling? Because it’s almost June 1st. June means the start of summer and summer leads to warm weather, travel, and seeing more of my family and friends. I just adore summer in Chicago, and I can’t wait to explore all of the places I missed while we were on COVID-19 lockdown. Especially museums! It’s also Memorial Day weekend, and everyone who works gets Monday off as well.
The end of May has and always will be an exciting week. But my darling, let’s not forget what Memorial Day weekend is really about. As thepioneerwoman.com says:
“Memorial Day itself is about so much more than grilling recipes, corn on the cob, and delicious desserts. It’s a sacred day of observance, centered on acknowledging, remembering, and thanking the millions of people in uniform who gave their lives for this country. Before anything else, it’s about those brave heroes and the incredible sacrifice they made.”
God Bless America. Thank you to the heroes who protect and lost their lives for our beloved country. We are forever thankful.
And now, on to the weekend musings…
