Abe Lincoln

“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 character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

The first time since 2005

This is why I have not done a lot of blogging lately.  Beside getting ready for a Art show.  I was going to have my family all in one place, for one weekend.  We had a great weekend!  My niece is getting married so I hosted a small shower for her, while the guys either hung out or went golfing.  On Sunday we all meet at The Waltz Inn, in Waltz MI.  Very small town and this place is filled with charm, plus great food.  It was wonderful to have everyone in one place for a couple of hours.  My son and daughter in law will be leaving for Afghanistan in a few weeks.  My other son goes to school and has the chance to go to France next year to study.  My niece lives on the other side of the state, and my nephew might be moving.  So before the wind could blow us around the world we had a few moment together as family.  My goal is to have all of us in one time zone in the year 2013.

What a lovely family. You are just as I'd imagined you. Love the necklace you have on. Your baskets are always a delight. I'm so happy for you that you all got together. Together is such a wonderful place to be.
