Remembering Memorial Day

We do not change as we grow older; we just become more clearly ourselves.
Lynn Hall

When I think of Memorial Day this photograph comes to mind.
We have always had a picnic and hung up the Flag
and celebrated with food and drink and fun. In fact
we do it for Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
When I dug out this photo and looked at the
two little boys on the left side under the flag I couldn't
believe it.

This was my grandsons 12 years ago. Where does the time go?

The night before I had just taken pictures of them dressed
for their Junior and Senior Proms.

this is the little boy that was on the left...

And this is his brother on the right....

A Stark reminder that time waits for no man....
Make the best of each day because before you realize
it ... everyone is grown up and you find yourself
a senior citizen!
Make the most of each day.....
When you celebrate Memorial Day ... stop
for a moment and remember all those who have died for our
Country and all those still in the battlefield of freedom right now.

Happy Memorial Day!
To God be the Glory ~Great Things He Hath Done!

Oh my! I feel your joy - and your pain. They grow up way too fast, but each time has its own special nagic. Thank you for sharing these.

How sweet they were -- and how handsome they are! Time flies and it is nice to remember those wonderful celebrations!

Those adorable little boys have turned into fine young men. You should be proud.. there are circles in life and I am finding myself stepping into the next roll as my own baby steps into the roll of young man.. I am so proud to step aside and let him make his way... Happy memorial day to you.

You have very handsome grandsons but I looked at your photo in the profile and header several times and you DO NOT look old enough to have grandsons going to prom!
