This is a Memorial Day weekend we are heading into. The whole week most of our thoughts were on the upcoming 3-day weekend. Not sure exactly how productive we all were though,  usually, by Wednesday, some people are just "phoning it in", coming in to work for a couple of hours to check their e-mail and such. Some people carry around an extra clipboard (makes them look busy you see). We all have our minds on getting to Friday and having Monday off.

Summer and warmer weather are just around the corner...

...luring people to the lake, doing some outdoor grilling, and enjoying the "Unofficial" start of summer - We all experienced what seemed like a "mild winter" - The grass is green now, and the days are long. So heck yes, we ALL deserve this time off, but there is much more than just sleeping in.

Take some time this weekend to seriously think about one word - FREEDOM.

Your choice to live your life any way you want. YOUR right to express yourself. This Memorial Day Monday, May 27th is a day to REMEMBER and honor all the men and women who gave their lives while serving in the U.S. military. Those who sacrificed and drew their last breath so we could be free. Our freedom fighters are always on guard protecting us around the clock. I have many friends who have served our country in the past, and their thoughts are with each fallen hero. A personal message from myself to anyone who has worn a uniform in the past and who wears one now - Thank you for your service.
