Memorial Day Wishes ...


"Memorial Day is a Holiday that's observed the last Monday of May, originally known as Decoration Day, commemorating the U.S. men and women who have died in the military service for their country, it transformed from honoring our Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War to all those who died in any war or military action serving this country after World War I."

We hold very close to our hearts all holidays, but holidays that honor our heroes are particularly special to us because we are a military family, and we know first hand the amount of everything that the military lifestyle takes from you. My husband serves in the Navy and I don't even want to begin telling you all the hoops we're juggling right now with yet another move, him living 500 miles from me and my kids crying every night for daddy. And all this is nothing compared to what other military families are going through, I have seen so much unconditional sacrifice with my own two eyes that it brings a whole new level of respect and admiration to everyone and anyone that has, is and will ever serve in the military along with all their families, you literally serve with your life.

This weekend at Natitys we will be running a sale for Memorial Day, 10% of your purchase will be donated by us to a Veteran's Organization. These organizations help with care, living, expenses, moral help to our veterans and their families.

We wish you a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend, we hope you have a wonderful time, and if you get a chance to honor our military at least in your own special way, even a small little prayer when you wake up in the morning, it will mean the world to us. Just don't forget what this holiday is about, thank you and God bless, Eloisa and family.
