  1. Beautiful post and a perfect reminder for all of us about the true meaning of the day! Xo, Stephanie

  2. You are so right about what today should be. Thanks for the reminder! And thanks to your mom and the others like her. Sorry for your loss. You have a lot to be proud of in her.

  3. Such a beautiful post Molly! As a Canadian it is nice to hear American’s discussing what this day should (and is) really about for you guys. It is an honour to read a post from someone who cares about the true meaning of the day. Thinking of you and your mom on this day <3

  4. Thank you for sharing this beautiful reminder of what memorial day is really about. I’m sometimes guilty of thinking about it as a day off and not really taking the time to honor what this day is really for.

  5. AMEN! Thank you for sharing. It’s also about the families 🙂 of the women and men who serve. Thank you for being the daughter of a woman who served and your sacrifice! Thinking and praying for you on this day Molly. XO


  6. Thank you to you, your beautiful mom, and your family for the sacrifices you made for our country and your fellow Americans. We are celebrating and honoring our soliders in this house today – and every day. I would love to hear more about your mom’s story if you ever want to share. I am sure she would be so proud of her girl today. Blessings Molly. Susan

  7. I remember that wonderful photograph from last year and an am pleased to see it again. I hadn’t realised it was Memorial Day again in the US, so yes, keep on reminding us! It’s always important. Thanks for hosting, and I hope that you’ve had a lovely weekend with your family x

  8. You bring up a good point about those that die from the effects long after. They rarely are considered in these kind of memorials, be it days or statues. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I think you did a wonderful job explaining what really is significant about Memorial Day and paying tribute to your mother. I am definitely guilty of seeing this as just another day off, but in truth the day is about so much more. Thanks for sharing.
