Today, I’m thankful to live in a country where we enjoy such freedoms. I’m thankful for long days in the sun, planting what remained to be planted: green beans, yellow squash, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, acorn squash, gourds, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc. I’m thankful the only things left to plant are pumpkins and the final field of corn.
I’m thankful for the smells that surrounded us this weekend while we worked in the fields – honeysuckle, wild roses, and blackberry blooms.
I’m thankful to live in the great Commonwealth of Kentucky, where it’s green like no other place.
I’m thankful to see a little tomato on the vine:
I’m thankful that the garden is doing well and I’m pleased to see the potato plants growing strong:
Every day, I’m thankful for this life. And on this Memorial Day, I’m extra thankful for the men and women who have served or are currently serving our country. Their sacrifices allow us the freedom to live this wonderful life. I am grateful.
