My friend, Pam, who I have been friends with since we were in the primary department in Sunday School, recently sent me this sweet pink teapot covered in tiny rosebuds. It had belonged to her mother, Joyce, who passed away a few years ago. Pam wanted me to have it. She knew I would cherish it, and I truly do. I am thankful for longtime friends. Even though we live miles apart, we will always be friends of the heart. I am thankful for each of you who stop by from time to time to visit with me. I hope you are having a good week so far. Sending you wishes for much happiness. “Friends are connected ‘heart to heart’. Distance and time can’t break them apart!”
The Fourth of July will soon be here!! What a holiday to celebrate America, my home!! To me, the 4th of July means. . .freedom. . the bravery and commitment of our soldiers and veterans. . .respect for our flag. . .thankfulness for all of the blessings we have as Americans. . .
childhood memories of my parents and the values they taught me. . .not just by their words but by the lives they lived. . .I will soon be heading to New Mexico with my grandchildren to celebrate the Fourth of July. We will be doing all of the above as we celebrate with my youngest son and his family as well as with my sister and niece. I hope you have a wonderful holiday, dear friends, as we celebrate America!!
