Praise the Lord that Richelle and Joe made it home safely last night. It was a day filled with prayers on my end. She told me they were almost involved in two accidents, but the Lord was watching out for them. Prayers continued....Thanked the Lord for his blessings also...the good and the bad.
As we continue to get thunderstorms, today storms came complete with heavy rains, lots of loud thunder and hail. I told Ken that at least it washed the top of our motor home...something we aren't able to do ourselves. Blessings can be found whenever you look for them. PTL!!!
Praying for our farmers who are having a hard time harvesting their hay. With all the rain, the hay isn't able to dry properly for them to bale and it is just wasted. We sure need several days of no rain so they can get everything done. Also praying for the gardens that they aren't flooded or washed away.
Our strawberries and raspberries are doing great. We are sharing the strawberries with the squirrels. We could not figure out what/who was picking them and leaving parts of them on the sidewalk. Then we came home and saw a squirrel sliding under our gate. All we could do was laugh as he left two more mostly eaten strawberries on the sidewalk. When I talked with my dear friend, Patty (McKenzie's Mema) this morning, she said they were really eating hers this year too.
McKenzie continues to enjoy her summer camping experience as they are able to swim, ice skate, crafts, play games and just having fun being a kid. Her mom drops her off on her way to work (about three miles from her job) and picks her up on her way home. Sure works out for them both. Her mom loves hearing about her days first hand!!!
June has been an interesting month but I am sure July will hold many surprises also. Talked to my brother in Montana the other day and wished him an early happy birthday. He is still a firecracker even at 63...born on the Fourth of July!!! We will call him again in a few days just to see how his and the family are doing. He is still a leader in the Boy Scouts and his sons are all involved in the military.
Be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and give them a great big hug!!! We are never promised tomorrow and need to take advantage of every day!!! Enjoy whatever life brings your way and have a wonderful week!!!
Blessings, love and hugs,
