“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to what is is Wednesday. Sorry I missed last week, but my military kids where home! We had a great visit, and now I'm trying to get my life caught up. This week I have a Cream Separator. It was used to separate the milk from the cream, using a crank, the milk which is heavier would stay on the sides, while the cream which is lighter would drain out the center. Remember their is light cream and heavy cream also. Some for your coffee and some to be beaten for your pie. Before the separator was invented milk would be aloud to sit for the cream to float to the top. In the summer months the milk would sour. The separator would speed up the processes, so no more sour milk. Today I have turned it into a plant stand. I found this down the road at an estate sale, when Grandma (everyone called my neighbor Grandma) passed away, and her home was sold. I love my separator, and so glad I have found a home for it.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
