More than Monday

WAFFLES:  What are you doing up there, Boss? Did Glogirly forget to put away some food? 

KATIE:  No, Waffles. I'm just thinking about what today means.

WAFFLES:  It's Monday, Boss. That means....well, it's Monday. And tomorrow is Tuesday–

KATIE:  It's Memorial Day, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  So it's not Monday? 

KATIE:  Well technically it is Monday. But it's also Memorial Day. 

WAFFLES:  Oh, you mean like parties and barbecues and FRIED CHICKEN Memorial Day! Too bad we're not supposed to have parties and stuff on account of the corona-thing.

KATIE:  Memorial Day is much more than barbecues and fried chicken, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  More than fried chicken? Are you sure???

KATIE:  It's a day of remembrance, Waffles. To honor and thank those we've loved and those we've lost. 

WAFFLES:  Don't worry, Boss. I'm not lost. I'm right here. 

Memorial Day Gratitude
We're pausing this Memorial Day to remember the people we love and say thank you. Friends, family, teachers, soldiers...some we've known our whole lives. They've touched our hearts and helped shape who we are. Some remain anonymous, having given so much, so selflessly, for this beautiful country we call home.

For us, Memorial Day serves as a reminder to honor those who we miss as well as those who continue to inspire us and love us unconditionally.


  1. Memorial Day is all that... and so much more.

    1. Very well put, Summer. Brilliance and beauty (but you're a cat, so that's a given, yes? ;D)!

  2. We'll never forget those who gave everything for our freedoms.

    1. And gave everything for the freedoms of others.

  3. Beautiful post today, we owe so much to our heroes.

  4. Very nice post to remember those that have served.

  5. We love the way you explain the meaning of Memorial Day. We thought it was only for soldiers. Purrs

  6. We hope you're having a very special Memorial Day!

  7. Today was a special day to remember all those who died to keep us free.

  8. I hope that you had a great Memorial Day. You are absolutely right that we need to remember to be grateful for those who gave their lives so that we could be free.
