You know most holidays have a nice snappy greeting. Merry Christmas or Happy Whatever. I guess for me I just wish everyone a thankful Memorial Day.
I was driving down the road today as one of the local stations was playing Memorial Day appropriate music when I heard the Tim McGraw song above. Now I’ve heard it plenty of times before, but today it just gave me goosebumps and a tear in my eye.
Now some people will think country music is kind of hokey or something, but it definitely has the power to stir something inside of you. I still get goose bumps every time I hear Alan Jackson sing “Where were you?”
I am now going to go back to cooking, eating and laughing with family and friends. I am thankful that for most people Memorial Day is just about the beginning of summer but thoughtful for those that know it as something much deeper.
