Wow! Where did this month go to? We have enjoyed time with our children (dinner, games, going to lunch, family party, and hanging out together), time with friends ( lunch, games, and good visits), and time at West Ridge ( seven new Eagle Scouts, a baptism, ice cream night, getting a new Branch Presidency, and surviving a bomb threat). I have also had a cousin pass away, as well as a dear friend who lost a valiant battle to cancer. They leave loving memories. I enjoyed Quilt Club, the Temple, fireworks, and reading some fun books. It's been a great month.
I am so thankful to live in this great land! We have so many opportunities and blessings. I am thankful that our daughter and her family were spared in one of our state's wildfires last week. We also had a nephew and my uncle who were evacuated because of fire. I am thankful that we can worship as we please. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to serve at West Ridge Academy and also in our home Ward. I am thankful for dear family and friends who love and support us. I love to see the flag! We have three at our house today. My husband repaired our flagpole, so we have one there. We also have one that flies on the front of our house, as well as one that the youth in our Ward put up in front of our house. I am amazed at the sacrifice our leaders and military have given to keep our country free. God Bless America!!!
