"My friend Dianne Phipps and her little ones from her church visited Daddy and the other residents yesterday at the VA, in honor of Veterans Day..this is the cap he got from them...that he was So proud of and he said the kids "done a real good job singing, you could tell somebody's been working with them."
I couldn't help but smile!

After leaving the VA hospital the kids from church were very excited about a fun trip to Chuck E. Cheese's. It was so fun watching all the kids playing those games (many which they didn't have a clue what they were doing) and having a great time! By the time we got home that night we were all pretty exhausted. I laid in bed that night though and thought about the wonderful and blessed day we had. Blessed to have people that are brave enough and love our country enough to serve in the military. Blessed to be living in a country where we have the means to travel to do special activities such as this. Blessed to have places such as the VA hospital to give medical care. Blessed to have our freedom that we can go in a public place and allow our children to sing songs giving glory and honor to God. Blessed that my children are so lucky to have so many grandparents still alive and that I can look over and see my Papaw Nulan, my children's great papaw, with a huge smile and tears in his eyes while watching them sing. Blessed to be a part of a great church. Blessed to be able to go to fun to places like Chuck E. Cheese's and watch my kids have the time of their lives! Blessed that I and my kids get to watch my Mamaw Ollie, the kids great granny, playing skee ball at Chuck E. Cheese's! :) Blessed that I have my wonderful mother that will go with me and help me out while my great husband stays behind so he can get a full day in of cutting wood and doing some side projects. So many things to be thankful for.
Look how big they look here!
*A special thank you to Sandra for planning such a fun & wonderful day!
