What do I think about Memorial day?
Ok, I don't know how the rest of you feel, but I'm glad there's a holiday to celebrate
those who serve this country. I wish it was more than yearly! Military service is dear to
my heart. My sister and her hubs are both currently in the Air Force. And my older brother served in the Navy for years
on an aircraft carrier. My mom, sister and I visited once when I was in middle school and
it did not look like a pleasant place to live months on end. All I'm saying folks is that I love
them. They are courageous and wonderful! And while some servicemen I've encountered
swore like sailors and behave in ways I may not condone, it does not discount the fact that
they are serving so that our country gets to continue our luxurious lives.
I'm not politically minded, and I for shiz don't claim to know all the
inner workings of our armed forces. But I do know that I am grateful
for them and their willingness to put their lives on the line.
Now...stepping of my soap box. I will give a shout out to my sister over at My Wholesome Home and say, I love you! So So SOOO Much! Thanks you for serving!
I called them all today to thank them for serving. All except my Afi (pronounced avee & Icelandic for Grandpa). I'll call him today because when I finally had time yesterday, it was too late to call... What time do grandparents go to bed anyways??
Guess what else I did today in their honor!
The most intense crossfit workout I've done yet. It's called "Murph" after a Naval Lt. who died in action. Here's the run down.
Run 1 mile
100 pull ups
200 push ups
Run 1 mile.
Yes. And to in my final mile run, it poured buckets on me. Touche Northwest! Touche.
If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen this
snapshot of me soaking wet post workout. Find me at @patternedlove
P.S. I guest posted for Kristina yesterday! Check it out!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
