It's National Donut Day, y'all!! So, we stopped by Duck Donuts for a donut. Guess which one is Griffin's and which is mine!

12-Year-Old's Essentials

This is a 12-year old's summer essentials for a ride into town - in addition to his iPad. I took our guy to the doctor this morning. He has a large knot toward the back of his neck. He only told me about it at bedtime last night. The doctor said it is a swollen lymph node, and it is his body's way of fighting off infection. (I didn't realize they were so far back). He said it should heal within two weeks. I have to be honest, this Mama was a worried. I'm thankful it was nothing serious.

Serving With Carpenters For Christ

Mike has been serving with Carpenters for Christ this past week. It has been a true blessing for our church, family and community.

Griffin was invited to serve along with his Dad. The past couple of days he has been delivering water, picking up the building site and being a 'go for' whatever is needed. I am so very thankful he's had this opportunity.

GVA Rocks ~ Kindness Rocks #gvarocks

I've joined in the fun of #gvarocks. It's a local group spreading kindness in our community by hand painting rocks and placing them in various parks/locations for others to find. This is our first batch of hand painted #gvarocks we hid around Goochland today! Spreading a little kindness one rock at a time. If you happen to find one of ours, please post a picture on the GVA Rocks Facebook page! We hid them at the YMCA, Spencer's Treble Maker Music and Hidden Rock Park. You can keep the rock or rehide it!

Colorful flowers spilling from a mason jar brings me such joy! Irises, strawflowers and daisies make up this sweet bouquet!

Carpenters For Christ At RMBC

Carpenters for Christ is at our church helping to build the fellowship/education building. Mr. Hawk offered to take some of our youth on a tour of the building. Our tour involved an animated and fun description of what we were seeing. It was amazing as we watched the men from Carpenters for Christ work in unison above us and beside us!! This was such an incredible experience!

Red Poppy

A veteran gave us a red poppy while in town today. It is an honor to wear it as a symbol of remembrance for those who have lost their lives in active military service. Thank you is simply not enough.
