Happy Memorial Day! Thank You Veterans Past and Present



Thank you to all veterans ...thank you for your sacrifices for our country and for helping other countries around the world. God bless you and your families.

I am so very grateful for the freedoms that we have as Americans. I am grateful to be living in this great country. So many things... as I grew up knowing them ...seem to be breaking down, but I believe in the resilience of the American spirit and that something really good will come from all the turmoil we seem to be experiencing now. Sometimes we have to go through the fire ...to test our metal , get rid of the impurities and come out much stronger because of the purification process, i.e., the challenge.

How does it go? "When the going gets tough, the tough get going."

God Bless America and thank you for those blessings.

Thank you veterans.

Happy Memorial Day!
*****************************
We are in the process of opening pool now. I can't figure out how leaves got on the bottom because I KNOW it was vacuumed just prior to closing it. ?? Anyway ..that is where I am headed now ..to vacuum the leaves out on waste and refill and then I think we will be very close to opening ...because at least the water is clear. YAY! :)
