Memorial Day and Birthdays

Happy Friday, friends!  Today, I am volunteering at my kids’ Field Day which means sun, fun and getting totally soaked (I always help with the event that involves the water hose…).  I’m going to enjoy the long weekend and last few days until summer and then see you girls back here again on Tuesday.  I hope each and every one of you have a safe, healthy and happy Memorial Day weekend as we take time out to spend time with family and friends and remember all of those who currently do or have served our country…especially those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom today,

Please also remember the Davis/Maxwell family in your prayers this weekend too…

…Tuesday would have been Manda’s 38th birthday.  I got to spend time with Manda’s mom on Sunday which was her birthday, so between the two birthdays and Mother’s Day, May is a hard month for that precious family.  Prayers always appreciated.

From my home to yours, wishing you the safest, happiest and most blessed weekend. xo

    Happy Memorial Day weekend Shay! And prayers to sweet Manda and her family. She did so much good and brought so much joy in her time here on earth.. some people live a lot longer lives and don’t do as much good.. so I hope her mother and her family take great comfort in all the good that Manda did and all the love she gave. xoxoxo.

    I helped at our field day, but they had to pull it inside because is freezing and so rainy in Utah still! April/May is a hard month for our family. We lost our baby niece last year, I’ll be thinking if you guys too!

    Today is the one year anniversary of my nephew’s passing. He was 41 and an ATF agent in Dallas. His funeral procession shut down multiple highways in early June, 2018. Please remember Special Agent Scott Ragsdale in your prayers, as well as his family. Thanks.

      I am going to stop and pray for your family right now, Brandye. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Love the flag, but who has the lucky job of putting it up there???

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama May 25, 2019 at 7:15 am

      Andrew Shull… 😉

      • Reply Cristin May 30, 2019 at 8:26 am

        And how exactly does he get it up there? I need more details. Because I want one for our house (when we move back to America)…but I will be responsible for putting it up. Do you have a scissor lift?

          A tall ladder and Andrew is all you need! I can loan him out ;).
