Thank you Bloggy Giveaways for sponsoring this fun carnival!!!
As she looked through the mist across the lake, she thought she saw a glimpse of her first love. It was night of the anniversary of the first time she met him. As her thoughts drifted back to that night 50 years ago her granddaughter sat on a nearby swing watching a smile come across her weathered face.
On that night, her thoughts were already consumed with thoughts of her now deceased husband. They had shared many happy days and nights out by the lake in the cabin she now calls home. She had been telling her granddaughter stories about her courtship with her first love. She talked about the long, summer nights of sitting in the small row boat as her beau rowed them across the small lake.
She told her granddaughter how this handsome young man captured her heart so many years ago and how he had to leave for the war across the Atlantic shortly after they met. She held in her hands the letters neatly wrapped by a red ribbon, as she tearfully told her how they exchanged letters for three long years, before he came back home to her, never knowing if he would ever come home alive.
She reminisced about their engagement soon after he came home from the war. She lovingly described their first little house. The house that was full of love of two young adults who longed to be parents. And she laughingly remembered the days of having more mouths to feed than rooms in that tiny house.
She showed pictures of the house that he built for her and their growing family. And she talked about their children frolicking in the very lake they sat beside on this misty night. Her granddaughter could almost see the ghost of her grandfather whom she had never met. She knew that surely he must never be far from his one and only love. She strained her eyes for just a glimpse of this man who made her grandmother smile.
As the time grew later and the mist grew thicker, she knew it was almost time to retire for the night, but then she looked at the smile across her grandmother’s face and knew that they would sit by lake for a while longer. Maybe she would see the ghost of her grandfather before the night was over.
This is a short story in response to a contest sponsored on Scribbit’s Blog.
Recently my homeschool group has started a healthy homeschool moms group. It has been a lot of fun! For some reason, I have not made exercise a priority in my schedule. And for the past 3 weeks, I have exercised several days a week. Since we are on a tight budget right now, along with the rest of America, I am finding creative ways to exercise. I have been walking at a walking track at a local elementary school. And on inclement weather days, I am utilizing our mini-trampoline. I am also incorporating a healthier, low-fat menu into my life, along with drinking a lot of water each day.
What are you doing to be a healthy homeschool mom?
A few weeks ago I reviewed two new DVD’s from the series, “The Nature of God in Nature.” I enjoyed the DVD’s, as did my family. I wanted to give another family the opportunity to see these DVD’s, so I am giving away the two copies that I previewed.
To enter the contest, please copy the following paragraph to your blog or send it to your email list. Please leave your comments for me at Tami’s Blog that is hosted with Homeschool Blogger.
“Discount Home School Supplies is giving away two DVD’s this week. You can win a copy of The Nature of God in Nature: Hawaii and The Nature of God in Nature: Lake District. Read more about these DVD’s on Tami’s Blog. “
I will leave the contest open until next Monday night (October 13) at 10:00 pm EST. At that time, I will pick a random number from the number of entries. The contest is open to residents of the United States. I am sorry that I cannot send this internationally at this time. If you are from another country and can have me send the DVD’s to a US address, you are welcome to enter. I have had some bad experiences lately with custom’s tarriffs.
