We just had Memorial Day, a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered. Like most of Yall, We grilled hamburgers, ate potato salad and had chocolate cake for dessert. That evening, the Ranch Family watched the movie “Saving Private Ryan” and of course I cried thru several scenes. We have had several Family Members serve Our Country but I am so thankful none had to give their life.
The days of Summer are fast approaching. When I was a little girl that meant days spent fishing at Dirleton Plantation, evenings around a backyard fire, touch football, and after Sunday Morning Church Service… window shopping along Front Street or a trip to the Creek at Pawleys Island. My Grandmomma Ola lived 2 hours away from Us in Hartsville, so We would go and visit Her and Uncle Frank about once a month or so. Those were My “Good Ole Days”. Me and Momma and My Brother Gregg.
During the Summer, the Ranch Family always spends a good deal of time outside with Our Animal Family, working on Our Projects, in the Garden or having a Coke on the Front Porch with Friends. I think this summer We are going to branch out a bit more and explore some new places and maybe revisit some of the places from My childhood like Hopsewee Plantation and Brookgreen Gardens. For Yall that are following The Ranch Family on Pinterest, I think We will make a new board with Our Pictures from Our new Adventures, so Yall be sure to check them out.
Yall know life is always changing and rearranging. I remember when I was little, My Momma tellin Me … “Sometimes God says No. Sometimes He says Yes. Sometimes He says Maybe. And sometimes He says not right now.” In all the changing and rearranging throughout My life and even today, I can see God’s workings. In difficult times we must not lose Faith. God’s got this.
