As you celebrate this Memorial Day weekend  please  remember and give thanks to the men and women who are now serving to keep this country free, those that have served, and those that did
not come home to their families.   My dad fought in WW1 and my husband was in the Korean war.
I also had a Uncle who served in WW11 and lots of cousins who have served this country.  I give
my thanks to all the service men and women now serving and remembering the ones now gone on
to be with the heavenly father.   God Bless America and God bless the men and women who are now

Yesterday my daughter, Deann, and her son, Adam, my grandson, took me
to the Birmingham Zoo.  Adam did voluntary work at the zoo but now he has a
summer job there.  He was off yesterday so he was our guide.  We got there
around 9 o'clock in the morning.  We wanted to beat the heat. There were
lots of school children there but I will have to say they were pretty well behaved.
It was the first time I have been to the zoo in quite some time.  I enjoyed  the
day and seeing all the exhibits and animals.    Below are some of the animals
my daughter took pictures of.

This peacock was strutting his stuff and he stopped and posed for this picture.
We went into the reptiles building but no picture were taken,  also the bird
building and last but not least the butterfly garden.

Let us not forget the men and women who are serving our country.
Keep them in your prayers and thoughts not only today but every
day.  God bless them and keep them safe.

Being a mother is a blessing.  We make mistakes at times but  we always
do the best we think is right.  I want my children to know that I love them
all and that I am very proud of all of them.

"Sweet  May hath come to love us, flowers, trees their blossoms don;
and through the blue heavens above us the very clouds move on.
                 ~Heinrich Heine~

"The May-pole is up, now give me the cup; I'll drink to the garlands around
it; but first unto those whose hands did compose the glory of flowers that
crown'd it."
    ~Robert Heiries~

Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed month of May
