It is the VETERAN,
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN,
not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN,
not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN,
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN,
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN,
not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN who
salutes the Flag,

It is the VETERAN
who serves under the Flag,

Staying Put

After a busy week, I have decided that today, I am staying put. No scurrying off to run errands, no taking care of the grandbabies and certainly no shopping!
There will be nothing but home time for this ol' grammy.
I had the pleasure of my Tomer's company for coffee this morning and together we watched, our resident Mama Rabbit give her Baby Bunny the tour of their (our) yard.
Now, the Mama knows what plants are good but Baby doesn't and last night the heads of several Marigolds were snipped clean off their stems and left shriveling on the sidewalk! If they taste as bad as they smell...I say shoo wee, nasty! Believe me, Tomer was not happy but thankfully, we had extra plants and the bare ones have already been replaced.
The laundry is swishing away downstairs and I plan to make and cut out some lettering for our Sunday School Bulletin Board. A new quarter starts next week and that means a new lesson theme begins...hence, re-do of the Bulletin Board. Maybe, I will post a photo of the finished project???
Well, I am off to laundrocize and do whatever I set my mind to...Hmmm, thinking that will be a few Word Search Puzzles, a Mani-Pedi, visits with Tomer in the back yard (in between rain drops) and you know that will include several Coffee breaks. Lol. Ta-ta for now!
Have a blessed weekend and remember to thank a Veteran...Let Freedom Ring!

Extraordinarily Ordinary

Greetings! I haven't been in the writing mood heart just hasn't been in it. But, I have determined that today is the day that changes. Praise the Lord!
Life is busy as always for this ol' grammy. Softball and TBall games have commenced, caring for and loving my family and being active in Church helps give my life meaning and purpose.
God is faithful...He created us for a purpose. Yes, He did!
Today, I have cleaned, (Tomer says I'm on a cleaning binge) beds have been stripped, comforters and blankets all washed and put back on the beds. For Supper I cooked up a batch of Egg Plant Parmesan and cut a bizillion calories, by not breading nor frying it in a ton of oil. Surprisingly, it was as yummy as ever! Goes to show that we can eat healthy and still have it taste good.
Just another ordinary day around here...I don't think so.
Serving God, taking care of my home and loving my family. These things make my life extraordinary!
