WHAT DOES MEMORIAL DAY MEAN TO YOU?
Although we know that Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women who’ve died while serving our country, it’s also a rare day off for us so, to be honest, many of us are more excited that it’s a chance to hang out with friends, sleep in, catch up on yard work or get to a shoreline somewhere.
I don’t think you should feel guilty about doing that.
That’s what those men and women died for: your freedom. You have the freedom to either go to a cemetery to put flowers on someone’s grave, or to fire up the grill.
I'm so proud of Angelina Jolie for speaking out this week about her double mastectomy. She could just have easily kept it a secret. She's had breast reconstruction, so who'd have known?
But she told us about her choices, and encouraged other women to educate themselves and talk to their doctors, and make their own right choice.
Having lost loved ones to breast cancer, and having friends who've survived it, I'm all for more education.
IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHIN' NICE...
I'm just wondering today about some things that have been on my mind, lately.
Like, what ever happened to just being nice?
I remember the saying from the old animated movie "Bambi" that went something like, "Mama always said, 'If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all.'"
Why is it so hard to say something nice to someone?
Why is it so easy to make fun of some celebrity kid who's struggling and falling?
Is it because 'nice guys finish last'? And what does it matter if I finish last?
Please share with your friends who are going.
Here are some things to take, and some things to remember, to make your Southern Women's Show experience more fun!
