Today is Memorial Day, and while I am extremely grateful for the sacrifices of those stunningly brave women and men in our armed forces, I’m thinking of something else today.
I’m thinking about how one year ago, I was playing Batman with my cousin Aiden. I’m thinking about how Aiden and Captain Thoughtful played legos and how thrilled Aiden was with the spaceship they created. I’m thinking about how hard we all laughed playing pictionary. I’m thinking about how one year ago I hugged my Uncle Tom for the last time.
Today, one year later, I’m thinking about them. And I’m so very sad and so overwhelmingly thankful for Memorial Day one year ago.
