Many parades will take place this weekend to commemorate the men and women who died while in the military service.
Growing up, our house was on the Parade route for the local Memorial Day parade. Early Saturday morning, my sisters and brothers would be awakened by the sound of the band happily playing their instruments marching down our street. We would scurry to the bedroom window to get a first row seat. Once we heard the drums, we would start to giggle uncontrollably. Perhaps it was the percussion of the drums or just kids being silly but it made us laugh and smile. The more we tried to stop, the more we giggled. Belly laughs and ear-to-ear smiles.
I can think of no better way to start the day!
So laugh a little…or a lot. It really is the best medicine!
