Memorial Day always brings special thoughts

I hope that you all had an enjoyable and safe Memorial weekend. The weather was nice. We had an enjoyable quiet time, which was fine. We both rested. Edna Smith went to see Beatrice Smith and Linda at Eatonton. Beatrice will be 98 on May 28! A

God bless all our veterans

Sunday night we had beautiful showers. Not too heavy to damage our tender plants and so refreshing. This morning (Monday, Memorial Day) the sun is glorifying everything here at my house. Thank you Lord for Showers of Blessing. Sunday morning, even with several out of town, we
