Count Your Blessings - Day Twenty-Seven

I slept in today and the only chore I did was clean the kitchen. We got four letters from Mr. Movie, currently away at Army Recruit Training, I read a novel, and looked up a few things online.

Sometimes a mom just needs a day of rest! TopDad is taking me out to dinner and a movie tonight.

A Time For Truth

Count Your Blessings - Day Twenty-Four

We had the privilege of attending a Presidential candidate forum last Friday in Des Moines. After the forum we attended a meet and greet with Senator Ted Cruz.

We got to shake his hand (I was first!) and hear him present his vision for America. We support him!

I'm grateful for honest, patriotic leaders who stand for principles no matter what.
