Thank you


Today is Veteran's Day. Regardless of your views on the
current conflicts we find ourselves in at the moment,
please remember that so many have given up so much in
order for us to have the freedom to express those
conflicting views.

Thank you to my Pappy, my Daddy, my Son & daughter-in-law
for their unselfish service and sacrifice.

My prayers for those who made the ultimate sacrifice
with their lives.

I love you all

A gift from the Universe

Just what I needed to read....my horoscope for today.

Capricorn
December 22 - January 19
It's important that you abandon the myth that you don't have
any gifts or talents, Capricorn. Consider thinking about your
talents in the same way you think about your body. When you
exercise, eat right, and get plenty of rest, your body
responds. Your talents are no different. They need care and
nurturing, too.

Pappy



Cecil Earl Yates
August 3, 1910 - October 29, 2010

I remember counting your wheat pennies every time
we came to visit.

I remember wearing your robe when I stayed with
you and Granny

I remember you always smelled like coffee or engine
grease...depending on the time of day

I remember that even as a little girl, I knew you
loved me more than anything in this world.

I remember your smile.

I remember our conversations and your advice when
my first marriage had ended and I didn't know what
to do or where to go.

And when I came to see you in August, to celebrate
your 100th birthday, I knew you still loved me
more than anything in this world.

You are the standard I judge all men by, simply
because you are the best.

I love you with all my heart and while I know you
are no longer with me here on this earth, you will
always be with me in my heart.
