“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 another what is it Wednesday. This is an old pump that would have been out in the yard. Each time you needed water you would have to go out and get it. Sometime the water would come up easy and other times you did have to work for it. In the winter straw and old blanket would keep it warm during the night and keep it from freezing up. Today we have it so easy, turn on the faucet and the water comes out, both hot and cold. Remember our great grandmother had to go out pump the water, heat it on the stove, then do the laundry, dishes, bathe the baby, and cook! But they are a lot of fun to turn into a water feature in your yard. A little pump from the hardware and some plastic hose and you are good to go! Does anyone have a picture of a pitcher pump that would sit on the side of the sink? If so would you share a picture and story about it. I would love to feature it and you on my blog.

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".
