2015 Family Reunion
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Log Cabin Day. This holiday encourages us to step away from a world of computers, electric lighting, and even indoor plumbing to embrace and experience a simpler existence.
Log cabins have a strong association with rustic and rural North America, but historically log construction has its roots in the timber rich regions of Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. A couple hundred years ago, life was far more rugged. Americans moving West found an untouched wilderness, filled with pristine forests. They built their homes out of logs. These log cabins were solid, long lasting, and served them well.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough.
Life may have been simpler back in the days when our settlers built log cabins, but it wasn’t an easy life at all and a lot of hard work was done just to exist. Thinking about what brave people they were to venture into unknown lands makes me appreciate my ancestors more and more. Now a days we have what I call luxury log cabins. But still and all living a simpler life is something that I can recommend to all.
It seems that today everyone has lots to do and keep very busy to the point of exhaustion sometimes trying to do it all. Thankfully, my children all took some time out last week to gather as a family. This is the first time in a long long time we’ve all been together and that is what today’s pictures are of.
Today is a great day to simplify and take a break. It’s Sunday my day to refresh and renew.
I hope you all have a RESTFUL and relaxing Sunday too !

COUNTING MY GIFTS
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
