Excitement

Our family vacation for this past Summer was planned for the last week in July. We had all of the plans made for our condo and all the meals. We could not wait for this week to get here. We were excited because all of our kids and their families were going to be there for the entire seven days. With the miles between us and our kids, it is not often that we ALL get to be together especially for an entire week. When the time came to travel, we all met at Pensacola Beach for our week. There … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

Sunday is a day when we remember our Mothers. Whether your Mother is still living or already in Heaven, it is a time to reflect on what an impact they have had on each of us. Leisa said that growing up she thought her Mom loved the chicken neck and the heel of bread best. She later learned that they were not her favorite at all, she sacrificed for her family. I know that many times my mother gave up her needs for the needs of her children. I remember when I was in college and driving a school … [Read more...]
