Memorial Day 2019

memorial day

I give a special reverence to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, for what they loved, a free and safe country for their families and all of us.    May we honor them in all we do and may we always keep this country free and safe in their honor.

May we also always remember that Freedom has a price and all those who have paid that price.

Veteran’s Day 2018 – November 11

Veteran's Day

For our Military, who have given service and sacrificed for our freedom!

I would like to take a moment to thank all those veterans who fought in the various wars and “police actions” for our freedom.   Thank you for your service, and thank you to your families for allowing you to do that.

I would also like to thank my Dad, who is also a Veteran!

Remembering 9/11 2018

9-11

As we remember the 17th year since this heinous attack was perpetrated, may we take a moment to remember all those who died on this day 17 years ago and thank those who helped in the aftermath. I would like to salute those heroes on flight 93, and all those who, on that day, willingly and unselfishly sacrificed their lives to save the lives of others. I also salute those in our armed services who have given their lives and those who continue to fight, selflessly putting their own lives in jeopardy to protect us and others from terrorism. They are all heroes to me and I will never forget.

VOTE!!

I Voted

Yes I voted.

I encourage all citizens of the United States of America to vote today, if you have not already done early voting, to let your voice be heard, no matter what side of the fence you are on.  It is our civic duty as a citizen of this country and a privileged right to vote for the future of our country.  May our Our Father in Heaven bless our Country and may all the divisiveness that has been going on be healed. 😦

Happy 4th of July – Independance Day

July 4th

Happy Birthday to my country!!!!!  May we remember why the our founding fathers came here and may we always work hard to keep her free.

I encourage you to check out this movie called Monumental.  I watched it and was very impressed, every thing was documented and it was well thought out.  It reminds us  of what this country was founded on and why.

Large Winter Pinecone Knot Bag!

I have made a couple of these larger knot bags but had given them to some special friends.Large Winter Pinecone Knot Bag view 2Large Winter Pinecone Knot Bag view 1

This one I can put in my shop :).   You can not see the sparkle on the fabric on the green boughs but it is stunningly beautiful.  Looks like snow,  I really wanted to keep this one for myself, but I have enough left to make a medium bag for me :).  This one is large enough for sweaters and shawls for knitters.

 

Yellow Orchid view 1OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASometimes when you are really busy doing for family, as the mom you wonder if your children really appreciate all you do for them.  I’m not saying that my children don’t appreciate the things I do, just as a mom you sometimes wonder because they are so busy with their own lives.  Well, my daughter showed me just how much she appreciated all I am doing for her with a beautiful yellow Orchid, just because.  It is so pretty, she even remembered my favorite color for flowers is yellow.  How’s that for remembering :).

Well “The boys” finally won a game last night against an old rival, the Redskins.  Was an exciting game even though I had taken an antihistamine and fell asleep before the end, so I found out this morning that they won. Hehe, I don’t generally fall asleep during a football game, but it happens :).
