Good afternoon everyone! Hope you all are doing well today. I'm so happy it's Friday! Seems like it's been a long week! Not a bad one, but just LONG!!! Looking forward to my dinner tonight at our church with my two cubs! (They call it the Fish Fry for Lent, but offer baked fish too) After dinner we're heading to the parish for the Station's Of The Cross. My cubs, who are Alter Servers, are helping the priest during it. They are both very excited!
That kind of leads us into today's word: Pride
I have lots of pride for my cubs! I'm so very proud of them each day! They are both doing wonderful in school, most of the times... make the right choices, are kind to others, helpful, and very loving! I'm sure many times they are mad at me (for being a parent), but get over it quickly, try to see my side or understand why whatever happened, happened. I'm very proud of my cubs (I'm talking about my human children today... hee hee).

Also when I think of the word "Pride", I think of how I love the USA. I have always had the "American Pride" my whole life! I remember when I was little how much I loved seeing anything that was Red, White, & Blue!!! Still to this day I love it!
This past Spring I made these flags for our outside decorations.
I saw this on Pinterest and thought how I could make it. This is the one I made and have it in the front yard (during the Spring, Summer, & Fall). You can see a pipe that is beside the flag. My original idea was to put it in front of the pipe to hide it. BUT with the wind it kept blowing over, so I just put it beside it... still helps hide it some, hee hee.
It's made from left over fencing we had and paint. I loved how it came out. Also love that it shows the American Pride, we have, to everyone driving by!
Sticking with the fence and flag theme...
We had these little fences someone gave us that we put up around our garden. They were starting to fall a part and hubby wanted no fence around the garden. So I kept all the pickets and made two smaller flags and hung them on our blue fence to decorate the garden. Looks good I think.
Thanks for letting me share again. Thank-you to all who stop by and comment on my blogs. I appreciate it!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
