3 Day Weekends

3 day weekends. Oh, they are glorious! They don't come by often enough. But when they do, regardless of the occasion, I have to take full advantage of them. I sleep in, lounge around, surf the internet far too much and catch up with friends and family (housework not included).

As we celebrate Memorial Day weekend, I am reminded of the reason we have an extra day away from the office. Hundreds of thousands of men and women have made it their lifes ambition to keep our country free and safe. It's easy to think that it's just a job they took but in all reality it's because of their unselfish people, we can live in a country were each citizen has a right to live a life to the fullest extent. Some of these American heroes never get to hear the words "thank you" because they give the ultimate sacrifice for our pursuit of happiness.

In honor of all military, past, present and future, thank you for all you've given to the United States. Thank you for giving me the ability to live in a country that I can do as I please and live a truly free life. And thank you for keeping the U.S. of A safe for my children and my children's children.
