Memorial Day Gratitude
Today I am grateful for:
Storm shelters and tornado sirens,
Not having a single outdoor party to attend on this wet and blustery day,
Having had an intimate BBQ with friends last night
instead of a huge gathering today as we usually do,
Time to rest, relax, and unwind,
Watching the parade – donned with ponchos,
hands on hearts,
The heroes who have given us our freedom,
A memorial service to honor them,
For sturdy tomato cages,
And a deck that is just beginning to come alive –
battened down for the incoming storms!
Happy Memorial Day!
