Happy Mothers Day to All You Moms!

This is my Mother and I taken way back in about 1936……………. What a wonderful picture of a beautiful Lady. I can’t say that I remember that day and I’m kinda surprised we even had a camera.. Thank God we did!

Here is a picture of three special Mothers. This is a 5 generation picture taken in probably about 1955. That’s my Grandma on my right, then my Great Grandma, then Mom. Then, that is my oldest son Mikel sitting on Great Grandma’s lap. All of these people are gone now but definitely not forgotten. Mom was called home by our Father 5 years ago and Mikel 2 years ago. They were all quite influential in my life.  I miss them very much but I know we will meet again. Praise the Lord!

It’s count down time for us here at North Ranch only 11 more days until we head for the Black Hills of South Dakota. Today we are off to Church to hear our Pastor Dean's final sermon before he heads to his next assignment.  He too was called to other places by our great Father in Heaven.

This is the campground at North Ranch and as you can see it is almost empty! It is always pretty quiet here but especially quiet now. Even our friends that many of you have met, Paul and Nancy, took off a couple days ago on a trip north to Oregon.  Have a good trip Paul and Nancy and keep in touch.  Drive safely....we are thinking of you and praying for safe travels.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

God Bless you all and Happy Mothers Day..

Mike

Yep, sure is looking empty there at North Ranch alright. Big difference from the last time we were there. Nice to have those black & white photos from yesteryear. Old Photos are priceless & refresh our memories every time we look at them. With only 10 days to go you will be chomping at the bit to get those big wheels a rolling. I always love the process of change plus doing something different & going some place else...........
