Summer is full of so many fine things for your family. Isn't it wonderful to have the time to reflect on what makes us so happy during the summer? Good to see you are settling in to your new, beautiful home.

This is a great example of what life is really meant for--LIVING. Today my neighbor, a single mom had me check on her son, age 12, while she was at work. She couldn't reach him by phone, and called me to go check on him. He was home alone in front of the TV, and I saw violence on the screen, was he fine? I don't think so....... I am just grateful that I am here with my kids to give them loving guidance. I invited her son over to my house and he played dress up in our army clothes and had a great time playing. Yes, a happy ending!
