Happy Memorial Day!!!

PHOTOS OF THE KOREAN WAR MEMORIAL IN MISSOULA, MT (Thank you Lindi for letting me add them to your salute.)

First of all a HUGE THANK YOU to all our military, their families, friends and anyone who prays or has anything to do with any of these things. I appreciate the sacrifices being made.

Family is very important to me. It truly hit home these last couple of weekends and next weekend. My family is all together and I couldn't be there. Other committments one weekend and work the other two have prevented Lenny and I from attending a birthday bash, a family reunion and a wedding.
Last weekend we had our kids over and their spouses and significant others over for a cookout. My daughter has a boyfriend. It had been a very long time since I'd seen him. I walked in my kitchen and there he stood by the refrigerator. I went and gave him a big hug. I literally had tears in my eyes. It was so good to see him.
So my heart is heavy over missing these family events. I'm just thankful for email, digital cameras and cell phones!!!

PS--check out my personal blog. I'm running a contest Mon-Wed this week in honor of the wedding I can't go to. We'll still celebrate!!


  1. Hi Lindi:-) I'm going to add some photos of our Korean War Memorial in Missoula to your post. I hope you don't mind, it's in keeping with your theme.

    Anyone who wants to see more of Montana can come visit my blog for a virtual tour.

    I went and visited Lindi's and played a fun game to join her contest:-) Go Lindi!

  2. Thanks Ang. What a wonderful addition to my post.

  3. The Obenhaus home has been full of family and memorium this weekend. With our youngest daughter's high school graduation, friends and family converged on our house for a big celebraion yesterday. What a great time we all had.
    As for the military, we think of them all the time around here. Hubby is a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and our middle daughter is currently serving in the United States Navy. Angie, the pictures of your Korean War memorial were particularly meaningful to me since my dad served in that war.
    Now if I can just survive the next three months with my boys. Oy!

  4. Thanks for the photos Angie!

    And Thank you for the post Lindi. Family is so important.

    Mindy, hope you've had a good Memorial Day.

    My dad served in the AF Reserves. My father in-law served in the Army during Vietnam. Both of them have passed away.

    I admire those who have served in our military. Brave souls who deserve our salute!
