Yesterday, I had to make an unexpected trip to my school, a mere seven miles away... BUT when I got the call.. I decided to go ahead and wear my walking shoes.. as I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to get some exercise in at our Veteran's Cemetery! The cemetery is absolutely gorgeous with its gentle sloping hills, reflecting pool, beautiful grounds, etc.. during cooler temperatures I visit the cemetery quiet often, but who would've thought I would be able to get a great walk in on July 24th, in Southeast Missouri??? Well, I did and received an extra blessing as there was an interment taking place, which was absolutely beautiful complete with Taps and a twenty-one gun salute; brought me to tears as I reflected on my brother and all the soldiers who have given their all for OUR country! Such a blessing to be able to exercise in this beautiful park and reflect on life and all the blessings GOD gives me everyday!!!
Have a blessed day!
