A father's love is one of the greatest of gifts.
I was blessed with grandfathers who loved their children.
I was blessed with a father in law who not only loved his son, but our children and me as well.
My Dad is one of the greatest men I know and I thank God for him each day.
The line of great fathers continues with my Hubby.
Happy Father's Day!
It is easier for a father to have children
than for children to have a real father.

Today is a special day.
It seems to have begun in 1885 with a teacher in Wisconsin directing the students to observe it as the flag's birthday.
Teachers are awesome.
Our town even has a Flag Day Celebration.
I have never been.
I am always celebrating someone closer to my heart.
I wrote these words years ago, but they still make me smile...as does she.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
I love you!

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
Today is my Dad's birthday and I could not have thought of a better quote.
My Dad (and Mom) believed in me when I didn't even believe in me.
What a great gift that is to a child.
Happy Birthday Dad.
I love you!

Followed by nearly passing out while grooming Piper,
Followed by sending a selfie so her trainer wouldn't worry.
Followed by lunch and this.
Chocolate fixes almost anything.
And then, the reason for a quick trip to the coast.
She was able to drive down and spend two nights with us.
And it was great.
Visiting, reading, visiting, sleeping, walking on the beach, visiting.
She and her family will be here next week for a final family get together before moving back to Norway, but this was just us.
She braved the VERY windy and chilly day so SPF could boogie board.
She and SPF marveled at their JENGA tower and its leaning ability.
It is so hard to believe that they have been here for a year already.
Time does fly
It was a great few days and I can't wait until the next time!
