Memorial Day

As I sit here and think of all I have to be thankful for it brings a smile to my face. Today was always a wonderful day for Ray, We were all as a family thankful for his service and for all the men and women that  have served our great  country. I not only have my son serving in the Air Force but now I have a granddaughter in the Navy. PROUD is a wonderful word.
Since Ray passed I had a lot of trouble going in the sewing room and doing anything. Then I went to a meeting and they were asking for people to do things and I have a hard time with the word NO so up went my hand and I had 50 red bandanas to make for dinner decorations for a Wild West Stampede. Got them done and the  serger  cleaned up and oiled again. Now I am going  to tackle the mending and etc. before I get to my quilting again .Got a pile of it and I have some quilting I really want to get on too. Maybe this is just what I need in my life right now.
I have enjoyed reading your blogs and I haven't been responding like I should have but things are slowing getting back to normal  in my life and I am so thankful for my family, they have been by my side and helped over so many hurdles. So now to all of you,  have a great day and hope to hear from you soon. Many hugs to all, Marie
