Sending Out Special Thanks to Our Veterans & Thanking Friends For Gentle Chides

I have a very deep and abiding gratitude for our veterans, and am so proud that we have a day on our calendar each year to pinpoint the focus on their service to our country. Having many family members and friends who have served and even are serving today, defending my freedoms, I feel my attempt to thank them here is inadequate. I pray I never take my freedoms for granted.

Thanks Clint for being the patriotic American you are.
(My brother in law. Wasn't he a doll-baby?)


It has been a beautiful day in this part of Florida! I'm in a much better frame of mind, thanks to Mighty Mom, Rita, Groovy, and a few other bloggity friends, whose gentle chides have helped me refocus. I know God is still in control and this beautiful day He has blessed me with is additional proof He loves me still.

Proof that autumn comes to Florida too! Beautiful flowers at the entrance to our neighborhood!
Beautiful blue skies this time of year!

I tell out-of-state relatives and friends that summer is NOT the time to visit us here in Florida due to the humidity, extremely high temps, and the rainy season. October through May are the best times to vist my state, in my humble opinion.

Hi Pam

Thanks for stopping by my site. It was so good to hear from you again.

Sure wish we had Flordia like weather.
We have snow on the ground and it is cold here. Lows in the teens.

We didn't have school today here due to ice. Uggh! It's going to be a long winter.

Beautiful pic of your neighborhood.

Bless your BIL for his service to our country. Yes, he is a nice looking man.

Well in that case, I'll see you in a week or so. LOL

Glad you're refocused! Is that a legal word?

Oh my! He does look like a baby! Kind of like my hubby's USMC picture. : )

And thanks for asking about my health--I'm doing good! I had some "heart issues" a few months ago, but all is good, praise the Lord!
