Can everyday be Flag day?

Homeowner's American Flag
The original American Flag went up June 11, 2001.

 

Flag day was two days ago, and yesterday morning before the Foundation Academy High School tour, shot this photo.

We’ve been in our current home 23 years. Cheryl used to change the flag seasonally…Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer themed flags. In June 2001 she put up an American Flag. Three months later (9/11), she decided to not put up a Fall themed flag.

One theme. Fourteen consecutive years.

Remember all the American flags back in the day?

American Flag in Gold's Gym parking lot.
American Flag in Gold’s Gym parking lot, yesterday.

 

Orlando Gold's Gym parking lot
Spent a few minutes talking with those guys about their flag hanging from their truck

 

Today is Saturday of the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday (Friday) walking to my car after a Gold’s Gym workout, a pickup truck pulls in next to me.

Approached the driver asking about the flag. Thanked him for his American pride.

God bless America.

God bless everyone who actively supports and enlists because of the notion that freedom and justice are worth dying for.

What we see depends, very simplistically, on where we focus

We forget that turning around is often stunningly beautiful.

What we see depends, very simplistically, on where we focus.

There is beauty ahead in life as a retiree.

There is beauty in what has been left behind too.

Balance.

It has many meanings, including the source of our gratitude.
