Life is good in the trailer hood!

Memorial Day Weekend


Mirandy rose bush

I feel pretty bad that I have not written a  post on my blog in a while… life happened here, and it happened hard. We have had eight deaths in our circle of family and friends in the last 6 weeks.  (Okay, I know… my most repeated words are… you love a lot, you lose a lot. I prefer the love!)

Then the tornadoes hit Oklahoma. My sister, my niece, and a friend’s neighborhood was hit, and we have been consumed with all the sadness and trying to help those in need.

My granddaughter also graduated from high school. It’s been busy… that is all I can say.

I stay connected on Facebook and have done most of my posts there, but I felt I should get busy and start blogging again.

What does Memorial Day mean to you?

I think about all the veterans… my dad, three brothers, cousins, uncles, father in law, and many friends who I have met through the LAVFW. I am a life member, secretary for our local auxiliary, and head some committees, the youth activity committee is my passion. I feel I have not done my best… but as I said, life has happened here for some time.

Today I was thinking about more than just the veterans. My mind wandered to so many places. People that have passed on, loved ones who were affected by tragedy, ones who have lost everything, or those who lost lives and limbs in the tornadoes that have hit the mid-west.

For those of you who are new to my blog, I would like to share a couple of my pages on Facebook.

This page is my journey in our trailer hood. It’s life at its finest and at its worst. It’s laughter and tears from a momma/grandma/great-grandmother. It’s full of fun, tips, hints, and well, just life.

This page is just what it says… we share ways to help others in the Christian way.

I hope you will all join up with us and make the world a better place, sharing your insights about how to help… it’s as simple as calling and checking on someone.

I promise I will be better about posting… hopefully life in the trailer hood will calm down. Above all losing my brother was a tough one, and I didn’t want to bring anyone down. May your Memorial weekend be just that… memorable!

Please share my blog with your friends, and please leave a comment. Love to hear back from you!

God bless you all! ~evie
