I wrote the following Post for Memorial Day 2012, but I don't think I can say it any better this year. And so, with apologies to those who may have read it once, I hope you will enjoy it once more.

Pvt. Aaron Johnson 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), places a small American Flag in front of a grave at Arlington National Cemetery. During an approximately three-hour period, the soldiers place flags in front of more than 260,000 gravestones and about 7,300 niches at the cemetery's columbarium.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day Holiday, and remember to keep in your hearts and prayers all those who serve and protect the least among us.
Mother Nature definitely gave us the cold shoulder
But, suddenly, you can feel the warmth of her smile
as spring bursts forth all around us.Of
course, she still has that wicked sense of humor.Instead of my car being buried under a foot
of snow, it’s now covered with an inch of pollen – nice one, Mother
Nature.Achoo to you, too!!Please pass the Zyrtec!
I do love the fragrant bouquet of colors and patterns that is spring.It’s time to pack away your dark, winter
neutrals and experiment with mixing colors and patterns in new and exciting
yet, the things you look forward to sharing with her, the things that keep you
running back again and again, never really change.It’s like the intimacy shared by two old
lovers who still can’t get enough of each other.
March 20th, was officially the first day of spring, although you
couldn’t prove it by me.When I looked
out my window that day I did NOT see “the flowers that bloom in the spring Tra
La.”I saw snow – about eight inches of
it before the day was over.
Spring is finally here, and I know it not just because March snows have turned to
because my In Box is full of e-mails from make-up and skin care companies touting
“The New Look” for spring and how to achieve it with their products.
