Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Our computer crashed and it took about a month to get it working again. If you would have asked me before the crash, how much would you miss your computer if you didn't have it? I would have said a little. But we missed it a lot! I didn't realize that we had become pretty dependent on this handy dandy high tech thing a ma jig. So we're back on board but a little more appreciative of the amazing reach of such a device.

While we were crashed, Spring did its magic on our Northwoods. The landscape is now sporting fifty different shades of green and the blossoms and early flowers are shouting for joy. The Loons are yodeling and the Peepers are peeping. The pictures don't capture the scents and sounds of springtime but they give a glimpse of the miracle of seasonal transformation.

A couple of the pictures show our memorial stone garden on our hillside. It reminds us of the love our deceased family members bestowed on us. We offer prayers of thanksgiving for all of the sacrifices they made for us and the values they instilled in us. We can learn much from those who have gone before us.
