Bead-A-Full Thursday {Memorial Day Edition}


It's another Bead-A-Full Thursday....
our favorite day of the week here at So Stinkin' Cute.

It's Memorial Weekend this weekend and I am sure you have
grand plans right?

We do, BBQ with friends, and lotsa time relaxing as a family.

Memorial Day was once known as "Decoration Day",
it is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.

Please take the time this week/weekend to remember those who have
fought so hard for our country and what it stands for.
This red heart bling bead would be the perfect addition
to a bracelet to remember someone special.

Whooo...sorry to be a bit somber on here...
but I am serious about being proud of what our soldier's do,
every.single.day.for.us.

And, as always, I have a give-away....

I usually think of Memorial Day as remembering those who have served our country. My cousin, Mike, is currently serving in Kandahar, Afghanistan. His base was under attack the other day, but he managed to call his wife, Deb, to let her (and their 5 1/2 month old daughter) that he was ok... however the attack still wasn't over. Scary, scary times and immense sacrifices.

I also remember those who has passed away- all of my grandparents, my younger brother, Jeremy (who we lost to SIDS), and other friends and relatives.

We usually go to my parents' cabin, however will be sticking around this weekend to have a relaxing weekend here before the chaos of summer kicks in!

I will remember my grandpa who fought in WWI and II. He passed away at age 84 and I have never cried so hard as I did when they did the 21 gun salute at his funeral. It is so emotional and when they fold the flag, thank the solider for their service and hand the flag to the wife...I broke down bad. I am crying just thinking about it. Rest in peace grandpa. We miss you! Also praying for my cousin Sam who is in the army in Afghanastan (totally spelled that wrong) right now.

My Uncle (Brandon's Great Uncle Dale) was there for the Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. He stood back on the hill and watched. He was a hero to those back during the war days and also for those generations ahead of him to write papers for school projects for Veterns Day and Memorial Day. My dad was a Merchant Marine and Brandon's dad was a Marine. May all the serive men who took care of our country for us who are still with us today or have passed on. Thank You very much...

I am remembering my Grandpa Bob who never talked about WW II, but the one story he did tell was one day a guy asked him after the war why he was so cheerful and happy. He said he had made a decision while he was at war that he was going to be happy. He saw so much destruction and hate, that he didn't want to relive that ever again. And he did it. He was always happy, had a smile and treated us kids as he own grandkids; sadly, he and his first wife never had kids and by the time he married my Grandma, well, they were beyond having kids even by today's technology standards.
