Happy Father's Day and A Winner !

Just wanted to take a moment to wish a few of  the men in my life a very Happy Father's Day !  My dad ,although he has  passed ,is still a role model and guiding force in my life,so daddy this day is for you ! I love and miss you so much ! My sweet hubby ,a wonderful father in his own right  .He is always willing to give of himself and let his own wishes slide to be able to  provide for our son's needs and  wishes .Now at this point in our lives , he does it for our son and his girlfriend.He has stood in for my nieces and nephews when ever possible  to be a father figure for them when they needed him . A favorite memory of mine is when my son was about two years of age and we were killing time in a pet shop. My little son found a cute little puppy and with his heart on his sleeve turned to hubby and said mine..no,no honey the puppy has to stay here I told my son  . Son turns to daddy ...please with that little lip quivering .Need I go on with this story ? I was soon taking care of a two year old and a six week old puppy.That is just a small example why  he was and is a wonderful father .Not only did I marry an awesome man but I gained another great dad in my father in law.He  has served in the military and has worked hard all his life to provide for his family. My father in law has always been there when ever I needed the encouraging word or just a hug .He is gentle man with a huge heart.I love all three of these men with all my heart and wish them the  best day possible .I hope that all the fathers out there are blessed today .Let's not forget the fathers serving our country and be sure to send up a prayer for their safety .



Now for some fun !LOL! Are you ready for the big announcement?  Drum roll please ....

Here is my sweet hubby mixing the names up and trying to keep up with Nascar. LOL!


Now he has it !Whose name did he get ??? Do you wanna see ? Really ?? Well okay then here you go ...




Congratulations goes to Angela of Thru Nana's Window! Please pay Angela's wonderful blog a visit by going here:
http://thrunanaswindow.blogspot.com/ .She is a very sweet lady . Angela if you would please shoot me an email with your info and I will get this mailed out soon. Hugs to all of you that entered and don't worry there will be another giveaway in the works soon.

Well the day started with more storms ,cleared for a bit and now it looks like the storms are rolling back into town..Our internet was down again this morning so if I should disappear for a couple of days that will be the reason. Apparently lightening strikes have damaged some of the necessary equipment so our service could be spotty for a few days.

My thanks to all my followers ,new or newer  !It means so  much that you are willing to spend a bit of your day with me. I appreciate the helpful tips on drying yarrow. I have a gotten a couple different ways so I think I will try them both out. The thunder is starting so I better close this post  out.Remember to smile and  walk with God .With God  walking at our side we have every reason to smile.Blessing and hugs,Jen
