Memorial Day ~ What's the True Meaning?




As we celebrate this very special day, remember it's not about having cookouts, partying or finding a special item on sale for Memorial Day! It's about all those who sacrified their lives so we could be free! The fallen angels, the families of the many who gave their lives and believed in our country's freedom.

I sent a newsletter out late last night as a tribute to Sgt. Amanda Pinson and added some videos from You Tube which were so very touching, they do bring tears to your eyes! However, I was so saddened to see some of the awful comments which were left by a few! It's so hurtful to think there are some who express such awful thoughts about not only the soliders, sailors and all involved with giving their lives for us to be free, but their families too! It is because of all of these fallen angels who believe in the Red, White and Blue, we are able to live in a country who believes in all of the rights we are so lucky to have!

May those who are fighting to keep us free, be safe and come home to the beautiful United States of America which you have protected! God Bless you and America!

Here's a beautiful poem I found and it does say it all!

Memorial Day
by Michelle R. Christman


As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave

They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine

As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let's pass this word to others
It's what they would expect

I'm sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.

Let's pass on to our children
And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It's the least we can do

Let's not forget their families
Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care

No matter which war was fought
On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.

So as the bugler plays out Taps
With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.

Take home with you a sense of pride
You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.


So let's remember the true meaning of Memorial Day, and thank all those who died so we might be free!

The Pampered Princess...

I am thrilled to announce, one of our members formerly known as "Prim and Sassy Cottage", has a wonderful new website and a new name for their fabulous boutique, called "The Pampered Princess"! Kathleen still has gorgeous boutique clothing for children but has changed her name and also has a fun new look to her website.

Please be sure to stop by and visit "The Pampered Princess" at their new website. We are in the midst of changing her cottage to reflect the new name. Her old site is currently not redirecting to her new one, but you can still find the same great clothing by using her new shop name and clicking here or the banner above: The Pampered Princess

I hope everyone is enjoying the Memorial Day weekend. The weather is just gorgeous here in North Carolina and we are planning on having a cookout on Monday and enjoying time with our family.
Happy Memorial Day
