Memorial Day 2013

Thank you and bless the men and women that serve, have served and died serving this country. You are not forgotten. Your sacrifices are not forgotten. And our freedoms because of you, your service, will never be forgotten. Thank you all. And bless all those that are missing their loved ones, friends, family members.

There's a place where I live that you can pick strawberries. Today they had a one day open to pick blueberries.

Keith and I went out first thing this morning. I said we needed to get a pallet, but him and the vendor both agreed that would be a lot of picking to fill that. I looked at them and said sure, ok. So fifteen to twenty minutes later all four baskets were filled.
The grower looks at us when we get back and says "you guys should have got a pallet!"
Now Keith is looking at it and says " aren't we sharing with the neighbors?"
No duh guys! I said we need a pallet! Ugh, another two baskets and back to picking lol! It was lots of fun watching all the families and friends enjoying the weather, the company and the blueberries.

Thank you Pappy's for opening today!

Happy Mothers Day 2013

Happy Mothers Day! Wishing a wonderful day to all mothers, those whose children are here, whose children have passed, whose children are lost, whose children are serving this country.

Because we never stop being a mom.

And to all you beautiful children whose mother is no longer around to shower with your love and give it to you in return, you are still loved, because we never stop loving either. Be blessed this Mother's Day and remember someone who is missing a loved one and give them a hug.
That's what I will be doing.
