My Mom’s Japanese Garden

My mom used to live in Florida for many, many years.

She now lives with my brother and sister-in-law in the North Georgia mountains.

Yes, a bit of a change for her, but I can say that she is very happy

and thriving in her new environment.

Prior to my mom moving to Georgia, my sister-in-law Pam wanted her to

have a very special place that she can enjoy and also see from both her

bedroom window and a very large screened porch that is adjacent to her room.

Thus, My Mom’s Japanese Garden was created. … Creation by Pam.

A New Craftsman Home and The Veranda

I was fortunate to have had the pleasure of touring the  HGTV Smart Home in Raleigh, NC

and wrote several posts about the home and one of the posts states how serendipitous it was.

I met the builder of the HGTV Smart Home and discovered that they also built in the same subdivision

that my son was researching to buy a home.

To make a long story short, I told my son how impressed I was with the quality of the

Homes by Dickerson and told him that he may want to consider looking into their homes.

He did, was impressed, and bought one of their homes.

Thank You For Your Service

“Thank you for your service.”

Seems like a phrase that we have used so much recently

when we are in the company an active service man or woman or addressing a person

who had served our country so heroically to preserve our freedoms.

Today, we say to all those brave men and women who made those sacrifices

so that we can live in the greatest country in the world,

“Thank you for your service”.
