HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
Memorial Day is officially celebrated on the last Monday during the month of May and is dedicated to service men and women who gave their lives for freedom and country. It is also a time to remember loved ones who have passed away. The roots of Memorial Day observance, goes back to 1865 and the end of the Civil War.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Babies are always more trouble than you thought — and more wonderful.
Today is the final star in our triple star weekend. Such happy family times are definitely hard to beat. I’ll be going to a shower for DS#6 and his wife today as they are expecting their 2nd child in August and this time it’s a girl. So even though they have one little Lucky Guy at their house they’ll now be welcoming a precious little girl into their home. Precious is my nickname for this 21st grand child of mine. All babies are so very precious, it’s a wonder I haven’t thought of this nickname before.
Today’s pictures of our little Cutie’s Patootie’s special day yesterday. We all gathered to celebrate her baptism and what a wonderful day it was. Lots of good food and good times together.
Today is Memorial Day and a special time to honor our fallen heroes and she-roes too! Please join me in taking a little time out today to pause and maybe say a prayer for all those that have died in service to our great country and for their families.
After 3 days of parties going on I know that tomorrow will be a day of rest for this grand’ma’. I’m just going to take it slow and easy and count my many blessings.
Have a Happy Memorial and celebrate !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1700 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1703. for our Cutie Patootie, she’s a cute one for sure!
1704. for all the great memories made this weekend
1705. for time to be with loved ones, to share their special days
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters

Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.
