In preparation for this day of remembrance we've been looking back and have realized that no one has been able to articulate what our hearts feel more than our sweet Katie could. We hope you enjoy our flashback Memorial Day post with Katie and Waffles. We love and miss our Katie so very much. Thank you for loving her so much too.
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.
Oh beautiful Katie, I miss you so. I’m glad to see this flashback, and to see the sweet photo of Ellie and Waffles together. Thank you for sharing this on such an important day of remembrance for those who have served our country, in all capacities. Peace to you in the mountains, coming from the neighborhood that looks over to Lady Liberty.ReplyDelete
