Memorial Day

We have taken it pretty easy this Memorial Day.  Alyssa had to work in Emporia so she was unable to come home for the weekend.  She also moved into her new house with her new room mates.  Ryan went with his girlfriends family to their lake house for the day.  I am sure he will come home tired and with a sun burn.  Courtney is hanging out with a friend in the neighborhood.  So we grilled hamburgers and made home made ice cream.  Oh it was so good.  I tried a new recipe for home made hot fudge sauce.  It turned out so yummy and it was so easy to make.    Mikes grilled hamburgers were wonderful.  It has been a long time since we have had grilled hamburgers.  One person really on my mind this Memorial Day is my late mother-in-law.  She passed away almost 6 years ago.  We always spent this weekend together.  The whole family grilling, laughing and having a wonderful time together.  Things have changed so much but as I go with the flow of life changing, kids growing, I long for those days.  My mother-in-law was a loving, giving, fun to be around person.  She taught me so much.  I could have never asked for a better mother-in-law.  I just pray that one day I can be half the mother-in-law to my kids spouses as she was to me.  I hope you are having a wonderful, relaxing day.  Don't forget to thank God for that special person that crossed your path at some time in your life while they were here in their temporary home.
