shame-1251333-1600x1200

Tiffany chose Why do women mom shame each other? from Love of Learning Mama. “Dale spoke on something that I have experienced myself – Mom Shame. That moment when another woman makes you feel less than what you are with words or actions. It’s not okay and we need to work together to make it stop.”

Kimberly also chose this post. “Sharon shared some great ideas for doing that dreaded thing we moms hate doing the most. The lint container idea is awesome! I hate cleaning the lint filter because it interrupts my flow. This would absolutely change that.”

Flag Flying!

As the summer months approach, some of us will also be setting our flag flying in honor of our country and those who served or died during that service. My dad served in the Marines, and when he passed, I was given a flag that is kept in a protective case and displayed. It means a lot to me to have that flag.

FlagFlying2

During the upcoming patriotic holidays the hubby will hang our small flag from the front porch, always showing proper respect to what it means. But I think we miss a few. I had no idea that there were so many other days that had been designated as days to fly the flag, besides Memorial Day, July 4th, etc.

FlagFlying

Here is a really fabulous graphic that show all of the designated flag flying days through the year.

The American Flag is an idolized symbol of the United States and should be properly displayed on all days when weather permits, especially on designated flag flying days. Never miss an important flag flying holiday by following the dates below:

American Flag Flying Days

The above graphic was compiled and designed by A Stars and Stripes Flag Corporation, a custom flag and banner company that provides the highest quality custom flags!

In the midst of barbecue’s and celebrations, never miss a designated day to fly your flag and the chance to say thank you to the freedom we have, because of those who fought to make it so.

Which days did you not know were flag flying days?
