Happy Memorial Day: Thank You for Your Service

Happy Memorial Day | www.TheHeavyPurse.com

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. I want to take a moment to thank all the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and honor those who have given their lives to protect our way of life. Thank you for your service and the sacrifices you and your family make, so we can continue to enjoy the freedoms we do today and every day.

Whether fighting for our freedom or making smart choices with our money, this quote holds true.

“The secret of Happiness is Freedom, and the secret of Freedom is Courage.” by Thucydides | www.TheHeavyPurse.com

Thank you to those who fight for our happiness and freedom.

    I love the image Shannon! I hope you and your family are enjoying the weekend! It's a beautiful day here in New York and we are enjoying the extra time together and plan to grill out later, like most of America. :-)
