Happy Memorial Day

Today, I am so very grateful for all the brave souls who have served, protected, and died for my freedom.The price that so many have paid for me is very much appreciated. Freedom is a beautiful gift and I greatly appreciate their service. For many of us, we have always lived in a world of freedom. We don’t know what life was like without it. 

It’s so easy to get caught up in the complaining. Every once in a while we just need to stop, become quiet, and really meditate on things. 

What does freedom mean to you?

We have the right to act, speak, and think however we chose. We can be a republican or democrat. We can vote. We can go to church and serve the Lord or stay home. We can send our children to school or teach them at home. We can work outside of the home or stay home and raise a family. We can voice our opinions or keep them to ourselves. The list goes on and on. 

We are so blessed to live in a country where we still have freedom. Today, I am grateful for a day off from work, but I am especially grateful for what this day means to me. Let’s take a few minutes and pray for the families who have lost loved ones and those who will be celebrating this day without their loved ones. Without them where would we be?

Love and blessings, 

Candida
