Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Bravery paid for this Land of the Free

Recent events may have us as Americans feeling bound, fearful or even like we’re visitors in the very place that should feel like home to all that reside here.

However, today we remember the sacrifices of the brave soldiers that come in every color, different sizes & from all walks of life that knew they were created with the qualities that it takes to put their life on the line for their nation, their friend & countless families they would never meet.

Their level of sacrifice makes the everyday memorable moments we share possible.

A simple ride on your John Deere with your grandson, wouldn't be possible.

There wouldn't be a sense of freedom for us to experience if it hadn't been for the veterans and active branches that protect us daily.


There’s no way to ever repay a debt of this magnitude but we can honor them, by never forgetting.

I look at my my father, who was also in the military, being driven around on his John Deere by my son & this simple pleasure is a gift.

A gift from the many men & women who were willing to give up these moments with their families so that ours would never end....American Soldiers.


[My son had his pawpaw a little frightened here, he was pedal to the metal lol]

I’m thankful to my father & all of the others who make these moments more meaningful.

Moments full of laughter & love, blanketed in immeasurable sacrifice.

Have a blessed Memorial Day
