An Appreciative Memorial Day

To just say "Thank you" does not seem to be enough.

"The greatest glory of a free-born people
is to transmit that freedom to their children."
~William Havard~

Thank you Mary, for hosting Mosaic Monday on your beautiful blog
A Dear Little Red House.



  1. Rett, what a great post. Have a wonderful holiday.

  2. Wonderful post Rett, have a wonderful week.

  3. Amen.
    None of us is here, in North America, because our ancestors had a great life somewhere else. They came here for a new start - for better things for us, their children and descendants. I believe that we owe it to them, and those who have sacrificed, to keep this wonderful New World in at least as good a state as it was when we were handed the reins.

  4. Rett, this is a beautiful post. Thinking of you. Hope your Memorial Day is filled with special activities. ~ Sarah

  7. Rett, What a lovely Memorial Day post. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Thank you for visiting my blog and BTW, my DH doesn't eat hummus either. Crazy men, they don't know what is good for them but I think it is a textural thing??? I keep it for myself all the time and love snacking on it either with veggies or crackers.
