Blessings!

I had such a good weekend and am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.
I went to Mass and then spent all day yesterday with my wonderful hubby Chad and my kids, working on our new deck. I will post pictures of the deck when we get it finished. (It may be awhile, we have been slowly working on it since last July)
I hosted a Father's Day supper for Chad's family. We were lucky to have his Dad and Mom, his brother Bryon and his family and brother Brad and his family come. What a wonderful way to celebrate 4 dads!
Another blessing was that even though my dad died almost 22 years ago, I still felt his presence with me yesterday on Father's day (as I do many other days too). It was a good chance for me to reflect on the wonderful memories I have of him and what a great influence he was in my life, even for the short amount of time he was here on this earth.
I am so blessed!

Sounds like you guys had a wonderful Father's Day. I know what you mean about your Dad. Mine is gone, too, but I still feel his presence when I think about the good times.

Yes, please post pictures of your completed deck. I would love to see it!

This made me smile. I'm sure he's pleased by what a wonderful mother you've become.

Glad you had a wonderful weekend.

It's good that you can appreciate your blessings. Some people are too bush to even know they have any.

Good for you for counting your blessings! Many people look at what the don't have instead of looking at how rich they really are!

Glad to hear you had a good weekend!
