Growing up on Long Island, this weekend meant the official opening of the beaches. At least one of the days was usually rainy, but we so looked forward to it. If we were lucky enough, one of the boats would be in the water, if not it was off to Tobay or the Yacht Club. Another great thing was it meant only one more month of school! Now as an adult, In this day and age, the coming weekend means so much more than a child's summer anticipation. One has to stop, think and acknowledge what it truly means. An immense gratitude is owed to all the past and present soldiers who have given the supreme sacrifice to secure our freedom Also in our prayers are their families, because they too have sacrificed. So by all means, spread the SPF 30, get sand between your toes, feel the frigid water, but let's not forget why we can do and enjoy all those things.
Blessed with being an at home mom of 4 for the past 24 years. I'm starting a new chapter of life as a part-time empty nester as the youngest is off to college. Spending more time creating and sewing.
