welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Tuesday, May 29

a small town parade...

Some glimpses from our town's Memorial Day parade...









A day spent...

~honoring our hometown heroes
~remembering the past
~tapping our toes to the marching band
~standing, hats removed and hands over hearts, as the flag passes by
~cheering and clapping as our kids lead their llamas in the parade
~adoring the next generation


"Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier.
We do not have to become heroes over night. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing
that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared,
discovering we have the strength to stare it down."
 -Eleanor Roosevelt

  2. Ginny, that's next on my wish list! I have two old spinning wheels...but they may be a bit too old to really work well. You've inspired me...I think I'll dust them off and tinker with them this weekend, thanks! -Mary

  3. I love that your town does this! We don;t have a Memorial Day Parade, but do have a large Veteran's Day one. So important, I think.
