A Little Chocolate

Below is a link to a very moving video by HUMAN, that I saw on Facebook. A short account of a Holocaust survivor's experience in Bergen-Belsen. I have watched it several times in the last two days. Brings tears to my eyes every time.

Are You Really Pro-Life?

With permission from the blog author, Traci Schmidley, I am linking to her blog post about genuine pro-life values:

Are You Really Pro-Life?

This is a very thoughtful article on the subject. I hope you will read it, and let me know what you think about it.

Home at last!

Grandparent's' Week!

My granddaughter is in second grade this year (7-8 years old), and that means that Grandparents' Day is a big deal! There is an annual assembly Friday with an art show, for all grandparents of children Kindergarten-6th grade. For second graders, the grandparents are invited to come into the classroom on a separate day and share with the children, an experience, a story, or a family treasure. In addition, Pawpaw and I had "homework" - we filled out a form asking questions about our childhoods, favorite memories, what we did for fun, etc.

G'daughter is all atwitter with excitement! She told me Friday that they read our papers in class, and everyone laughed at Pawpaw's memory: seeing a family of wild hogs near his grandfather's beach home. I guess the idea of pigs (hogs) at the beach was surreal to them! :-)

Tomorrow is the big day, when we go into her classroom and share. I'm taking a story book (it's already in the car), and Pawpaw will tell more about his grandfather's place at the beach. I have my clothes ready and I'll set the alarm so we won't be late!

Grandparents Day!
