A ceremony missed
Today I rise to hold close those who serve, have served, in the military. It’s the first time I have blogged in 2 weeks or more. In getting today’s word I happen to notice there will be no more daily posts or word press community blogging site. The end of an era, of ceremony. A day of melancholy.
I had an uncle that served in the military, as well as cousins. An uncle in WWII, a cousin in Vietnam. My family, like most families, has a history in all branches of the military. My grandfather attempted to join the navy at 17 years old. His brother successfully joined a few years later.
None of those are with us anymore. My cousin passed a few years ago. A loss felt. Change observed as everyone has moved on. But I guess that is the reason for the season, is it not? They are not with us to be honored except in memoriam.
Waking to a new day
a new daily word; then going about my day finding resemblance of the word in it; unwinding at the end of my day by taking a look at all those who did the same and submitted their blog versions of the daily word, while submitting my own; a ceremony of sorts that has come to an unfortunate end. I will miss it until I find a new avenue to meet and greet other bloggers.
Hope everyone had a beautiful Memorial Day.
