Oh what a blessing to live in such a wonderful country! I was telling Samuel and Jonathan today about going to Normandy when we went to France a few years back. We had one completely free day, and Paul asked what I wanted to do. We could go to Paris....Paris! Who doesn't want to go to Paris?! Or, we could go to...Normandy. Well, as soon as I had this thought: I will go to Normandy, it's the least I can do, to honor all the mothers who weren't able to visit their sons' final resting places.....there was no Paris for me. (We drove through it, and flew into and out of it, spent one night there in the airport hotel, and no, it's not really experiencing the city, but.).
What a day it is for us, to be thankful for those who fought so we can be free.
We had a good weekend, I enjoyed having Sam and Grant here.
Two of my patriotic kids, Jon and Sam.
