Happy ‘Decoration’ Day

Photo by author

As my Mama used to call it way back when. Memorial Day brings such memories of visiting small town cemeteries and putting the obligatory brightly colored plastic tub of Mums on the graves. It may sound weird that a cemetery would be a pleasant memory, but seeing all the flowers on the fresh spring grass and walking around reading all the names, was something we looked forward to.

My parents have been gone for 14 years.😰 Oh how I wouldn’t give for one more day of “Decoration day”.

Here’s some way to honor Memorial Day from Hub United.com:

  • Enjoy a parade
  • Visit a memorial
  • Learn about history
  • Pay your respects
  • Experience a concert
  • Step into the past
  • Lend a helping hand
