I am thankful today for all of those who fought to keep our country free. For me, I appreciate the beauty of our land daily, and I'm reminded at the end of every May that people have fought and died to keep our country free.
We were given a gift on our National Forest - our Fairy Slippers are in bloom! They survived under three feet of snow and are still shining like jewels on the floors of our pine forests. I am overjoyed!
Another gift is that our aspen groves have the glorious light green hue of early spring.
Happy Memorial Day.
