Grateful for a chance to get together with family

We had the chance to hit the pool yesterday with our daughter and her family. A barbecue and some ice cold watermelon are all good ways to kick off summer! But the best part of it all, was a visit from their sister in law. She has been like another daughter since they were wed. She and her husband are getting ready to move far away, so it will be awhile before we have such a chance again. Here she is with our granddaughter enjoying trying out several varieties of bubble pipes. There were many beautiful bubbles and lots of laughter! Hope anyone who wanders over here to read this post will have a wonderful weekend with family as well. Happy Memorial Day!

Please remember to say a prayer of thanksgiving  and protection for the current members of all the armed forces and their families. Memorial Day is about soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We have so many blessings in our country, but many will mourn a fallen soldier from the current war or one long ago.
