Amazing Gift to be Thankful For...

What an amazing gift we Americans have been given. A few hundred years ago God stirred the hearts of men and women to leave house and home and set out across the ocean for lands unknown. They risked life and limb for freedom and opportunity and the ability to worship God without persecution. This was the sight I awoke to this week in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. It was awesome!  It was beautiful!  And I couldn't help but think that our founding forefathers , by the grace of God,  fought to establish this beautiful land as the country we all know and love...the greatest country in the world ....a gift to us all.

Happy Fall, Ya'll!!!

It is , of course, officially fall here in the Carolinas, but it really doesn't feel like it to me until the NC State Fair rolls through . This year the girls entered the Fair competition with foods and crafts. Hunter, Logan and Olivia all won ribbons so it was a banner year! Especially thrilling was the blue ribbon that Logan brought home for her first quilting project. Girls, we are so proud of you!!!
