Today I am GRATEFUL for:

Being in the right place at the right time. I got a really great deal on a cooler today and I wasn’t even looking for one. Last one on the shelf at 75% off. Perfect!

IMG_2184History. I love history. Studying things of the past, events and people is one of my favorite pastimes. This weekend we celebrated the 200th birthday of our National Anthem, written by Francis Scott Key.  Take a few minutes and read about the history of this poem from its inception to becoming our official anthem in 1931.  It’s all very interesting. Here are two good links to learn more.   Star Spangled Banner and Anthem.

Making Plans.  I have big plans for this weekend and I am very excited. I am going camping with several of my girlfriends. I love camping and I haven’t been in well over twenty years.  I am sure I will be sharing this trip with you on here.  It is going to be so much fun.


Thank you for giving me an inquisitive mind that helps me to enjoy studying and learning about things in the past.  Thank you again, for those who fought for our freedoms and for Francis Scott Key for penning the words to our anthem. Thank you so much for our beautiful flag and all it stands for.

Thank you that I am healthy enough to attempt this trip.  Thank you that my friend B. Has finished his treatments that have been so very hard on him.  I pray, Father that the treatments worked and that he will be back to his old self, full of energy, very soon.  You are Jehovah-Repha, The Lord that heals us and we give you all the praise for taking care of us. 


Start a conversation. I would love to hear from you.
