A Weekend in October!

Ahhhhh....the first weekend in October!

Briskness in the air.

Apple Orchards to visit.

Bumpy Hay Rides to laugh through.

Vibrant Mums to adorn our front yards.

Bright orange pumpkins to choose and carve.

Crockpots pulled from pantries and filled with fixings for Chili and stew.

The aroma of freshly baked pies, cookies and cobblers filling our kitchens.

Ahhhh....the first weekend in October!

Meanwhile, in a far away land... Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines are protecting our freedoms. These everyday enjoyments are a memory to these brave men and women.
May Almighty God bring our heroes home safely, so they too can delight in these everyday blessings!

We are enjoying October comforts here in the USA while our troops are sacrificing for us. God bless our brave men and women in the service! I pray that God keeps them safe.

I just dropped by from Buck's blog where I am a regular reader and saw your comment. I'm also a Soldiers' Angel and have been supporting soldiers for several years now. I enjoyed looking through your blog. Congrats on your up coming Grand Girl. I call mine the GGs - they call me Booboo. You have a handsome son - I know you are proud of him.
