Sunday Reflections…

Beautiful sunrise this morning! I Love watching the Sunrise! I was thinking this morning how simple & available it is, but few take advantage of the beauty & power of a Sunrise. To me it’s a simple blessing that comes everyday to enjoy… The older I get the more I crave it 😊

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

 

Have a great Sunday!

D-Day’s 75th Anniversary | God Bless America

The Normandy landing operations took place on this date, on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

The determination & bravery of the men that took those beaches was unparalleled! Their victory laid the foundation that won the war.

I grew up on my granddads stories of the war & I always remembered Omaha Beach, the beach where he and his group landed. ‘Omaha Red’ he called it, he said the blood that was spilled there gave it that name – So much blood that the beach, the water, everything was Red!

This is one of the only pictures I have of my grandfather in uniform (center standing with his hand on his rifle sling). This was from a unit photo before they deployed. He made it through the war and back home. A highly decorated hero. A great man & role model.

June 6th is also a special day for my Mom 😊 It’s Her Birthday 🎂 My grandad always said he knew exactly where he was on that day in 1944…

Its been 75 years & we are still reaping the benefits from these men & women’s sacrifices. I thank God for our freedom & for the work & sacrifice that it took to make it so. We can never forget that Freedom isn’t Free!

God Bless America!

Ps: If you are lucky enough to still have a WW2 veteran around you, go see them today & hug their neck and thank them for their service.
