"Happy Memorial Day" seems strange to say
with so many loved ones lost along the way
But happiness is not because they are gone, you see
We are happy knowing that is what they want us to be.

I like that poem. I have always thought it was strange or inappropriate to say "Happy" Memorial Day, but the poem gives me a different prospective.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

I could tell that the poem had a lot of emotion behind it.

There is no need to water flowers around here lately, due to the constant rain.

I decided to give my tomato plants an extra treat today since they are starting to bloom, even though we'd had ample natural rain recently.
I gave myself a treat also.

I've said before that I don't like mint, so I'll pass on the mint juleps, but enjoy yours!

I usually have coffee with my donuts but milk is more appropriate today.
