Memorial Day Reflections

This weekend we remember and honor those who have fought for our country.
We celebrate those lives because of the sacrifices they made to ensure our freedom.
We are blessed beyond measure.
We live in the "land of the free."
This flag represents so much.
It is shown in this picture flying in our city, reminding us of the freedom we have.

The flag was draped over the casket of my sweet Daddy, who proudly served our country.

This weekend we also remember loved ones who have gone Home to be with Jesus.
(Grandma Dorothy)

This was a picture taken on Grandpa John's farm before it was sold months after his passing.
He, too, was a member of the military, and proudly served as a merchant marine.

As I sit and remember times with these lost family members,
tears of joy for them well up in my eyes.
None of them are hurting.
What a delicious gift.

Happy Memories, Friends.
Be safe in your travels.

Living the Dream

Living the Dream
I love Christmas Eve when the house is quiet and there is nothing left to do but wait for Santa and Christmas morning to arrive!
