Sunday Reflections…

Today is a special day! In more ways than 1… Today, every American should remember the D-Day Invasion of WWII, June 6, 1944. That was the day that Allied forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy. My grandfathers unit was there (Omaha Beach) and I have always felt a sense of pride and gratitude knowing what all those great men did for us 🇺🇸

Grandad was a Tank Destroyer in WWII. Today was a big day for the men that landed on the beaches at Normandy. Big day for all of us as well! God Bless America 🇺🇸

The other thing that makes this a very special day is that today is my moms birthday! 🎂 A very special day indeed! 💥

Happy Birthday mom! 🎈

You can’t send mom a Facebook Birthday message, because she’s not on Facebook 😊 BUT, she does read my BLOG … So feel free to drop a HB comment here if you’d like to. I’ll make sure she gets it 😊

Thanks mom for all you do! You are a linchpin! You hold it all together and make it all work. I don’t know what I would do without you 🙏🏻❤️

Happy Birthday! 🎈 I Love You! ❤️

“Thoughtful lady, that works so hard,
Always been there, my dear lifeguard.
Places others before herself,
Proud of pictures on her shelf.

When in pain, maintains here smile,
Multi-tasking, she’s versatile.
With all of this; time she finds,
Her love for us, constantly reminds.

On her birthday, just want to say,
I don’t know how, I will repay?
Eternally grateful, I hope she will see,
The greatest mother, she will always be.

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.
