Rembering . . . . .

Today we remember those that have gone before us in order that today we can have the freedoms and privileges that come with the battles they fought for. At the cemetery this morning after the parade  the speaker  commented that we all volunteer for things like Church scouts, PTA but let us not forget those that volunteered their life in service for this country both in war and peacetime.  This level of volunteerism goes above and beyond the call of duty.  We celebrate the fallen and those that are still with us but have served or are serving.  My dad served for 3 years in Hokkaido, Japan during the Korean Conflict. My Father- in - Law served in Washington DC  Hats off to veterans and current service men and women.  This is our Boy Scout Troop placing Flags 2 days ago at local cemetery.

Hearts in Nature . . . .

The Heart knows no end . . . .  Do you ever wonder what finding these little symbols of love mean?  Are these left for us to discover?  Are they meant to send us a message? Whatever they are beautiful.  These are from Elgin, Ontario Canada.

Happy Mothers Day!!!

This is a favorite Book of mine and here the author reads a passage from it.


The Gift of an Ordinary Day  by Katrina Kenison

Thanks to all of you Mothers out there and to all those that help us mother those in our nests. Thanks to the friends, neighbors, work colleagues and family that  help on this grand journey of being a mom.
Happy Nurturing Day, Happy Mothers Day!   Happy very ordinary day, I am glad you are here because that means I have food shelter, friends and good health that allow me to enjoy a simple ordinary day.

Sorry for the extended stay away

I never intended to be gone this long.  I am going to try and be better but have a family member going into the hospital this week so we'll see what the next few weeks bring about.   Missing my blog!
