Too busy to do anything!

It seems like I get too busy to do anything, I have been making more of the same things, burprags and receiving blankets. I am finishing another jacket up for another lucky little boy. I will put that on as soon as I get it done. The rest of my time is spent with house work and teaching piano lessons. I am about done with the piano lessons for the summer and then it all starts over again in September. I enjoy it all so I can't complain and will keep adding things as time permits.

The 4th of July

Well we made it through another year of fireworks. Watching the grandchildren with sparklers is enough to put me on STRESS OVERLOAD. It isn't that they do anything wrong- they just wave them around, twist in circles and get way to close to each other. Uncle Vern jumped up and put a sparkler out with his hand to prevent one of the littlest ones from burning two other ones. I was surprised at how fast he could jump up out of the chair and move. He thought it was just too bad that we didn't drink beer because he felt he could have used at least one. The barbeque was great, the food was great, desserts too. We enjoyed the time we spent with our children, their spouses and the grandchildren. It was a wonderful day.

Now how can I possibly thank all of those men and women who gave their lives for this wonderful freedom we have. I feel like they deserve way more than they are getting. The seperation from their families, friends and country. The loss of arms, legs, eyes, organs and lives we just don't recognize and honor them enough. I am truly greatful to the wonderful parents of those children, they loved, honored, taught, respected and loved their children just as I do mine.

Thanks isn't enough but it is all I can give you right now, Thank you and may God bless you and yours until we meet again in a far better place than here.
