happy memorial day! let us take a moment to thank and remember those who have fought and are fighting for our freedoms that we sometimes take for granted! With love comes sacrifice! and thank you Quique Trevino (my grandpa) for telling stories of our relatives who are no longer with us who served our country!
My sweet bloggy friend Kendra of A Proverbs 31 Wife, wrote a perfect memorial day post that basically said everything I wanted to express plus some with a viewpoint that I never thought about: how this day can also be a day to remember the ultimate sacrifice for mankind and eternal life, Jesus Christ. Wow, blew my mind away!
I want to share some old photographs of my extended family members who have served our nation. I never got to meet them in person, so I look forward to the day when we will be reunited. I also am grateful that my grandpa Henry shared these pictures to keep their memory alive and also to my grandpa M and my uncle Gilbert who served in the Air Force and the Marines respectfully.
