I really want to express my gratitude for the freedoms I enjoy living in the United States.  I am grateful for military men and women and their families for the sacrifices they make to maintain my freedoms.

I am grateful for men like my father-in-law who fought in WWII.  He has shared many stories of the war with me.  He has made it very real to me.  Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.  I remember reading the Diary of Anne Frank as a teenager. It was the first time I got a real picture of how the Holocaust affected families.  It is a very moving book.  Another good reason to keep a journal, but I digress.

Several years ago, The Holocaust museum brought a traveling exhibit to Kansas City.  I went to it.  It was one of the most moving experiences I have ever had.  Pictures, video and survivors gave me a reality check.   I believe it is important to know about and remember the Holocaust.  There is much to learn from it.  

I encourage you to check out the website below for more information.  Take a moment to remember and pray for those who were affected by the Holocaust.  Take a moment to express gratitude to our Heavenly Father for what we have.

Just a little bragging

My daughter tried out for a part in Romeo and Juliet.  She got the part of the nurse.  She is very excited about it.  The funny part is she will be dressed in a fat suit and they will be enhancing her figure.   Anyone who knows my daughter knows she does not really need enhancing, if you catch my drift.  lol  The play is March 5th and 6th, 7pm at SVJH.

A great Christmas present

This Christmas we gave our dog, Mitzi a new toy.  The only toy she loves is a duck that is made by the American Kennel Association.  The duck is very durable and lasts a pretty long time and most importantly  it squeaks.  My hubby put the duck into a paper lunch bag.  Christmas morning we gave her the bag and she stuck her nose in and got really excited.  She dragged it around trying to pull out the duck.  It was so cute and funny.  We all laughed and laughed.  When she got the duck out she ran around prancing with it in her mouth.  Then she jumped up on the couch and laid her head on it.  She was so happy.  I wish everyone was so easy to please.
