Some helicopters that were stationed at the Manning Park Lodge for that fire that was just across on the USA side. Our Son-in-Law Glen ..was station there. Their helicopter is the East West Helicopter.(bottom left corner)

Our daughter went along with the two girls and joined her husband at Manning Park Lodge. The pilots and mechanics dig a hole and were trying to make a pool for the girls ..but what(?) no water to spare. So they all had fun in the sand. Great bunch of guys.

Dedicated to Barb and Neti and Nina.
Thanks for touching my heart and allowing me in and to be part of:

A friend accepts us as we are
Yet helps us to be what we should be;
A friend affirms us when we're weak
And gives us strength to set us free

True friends will say what's kind and true,
though it may cause us pain;
They're thinking of what's good for us
And we stand to gain

A true Friend remains true to the end.

Faithful are the wounds of a friend---Proverbs 27:6
Through love serve one another. --- Galatians 5:13
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. ---Ephesians 4:32

We really live when we live to give.

The Cross is God's compass, pointing the way to heaven.
How do we decide when we will hurt one another:
so here are a couple of things to think about :

Actions speak louder than words.
Love without action is not Love.
Forgiveness is the key that opens the door to freedom from resentment.
Revenge takes you down to the level of your offender.
Never fear criticism when you're right; never ignore it when you're wrong.
Nothing weakens the truth more than stretching it.
An ounce of example is worth a ton of advice.
and last but not the least :

Our Granddaughter MELISSA

How time flies and then you look and see how much she has grown....our little sweetie...

We love you dearly girl..always remember that X O X O X O X O

Well here we are in to the second day of school for some ...Our Granddaughter Melissa had her first full day of school today(Grade 5)...yesterday she recieved a pre recorded message from Hiliary Duff..and then this morning Hiliary Duff phoned again to wake up our sleepy head. Melissa was so excited. It was also the very first day for our grandaughter Jordana to school (kindergarten). We phoned to see how she liked it and she did. She lives in Fairview, Alberta. So we don't get to see them that much. One day soon we hope to be able to spend more time with them..before they are all grown up. Girls we love you dearly. Have a great year in school.

I have been trying to think about how I could say how important family is ..this may talk about friends ..but I also think this could be helpful with family to.

C-A-R-E can help us remember four key elements of friendship

Challenge your friend to grow spiritually. A good friend knows the

importance of turning conversation toward matters of faith.

Affirm your friend's value. A phone call or note can let your friend

know how important he or she is and can keep your friendship

Respect the feelings and wishes of your friend. No one wants

a friend with whom ideas, dreams,and concerns fall on deaf
ears. A good friend is a great sounding board.

Encourage your friend through compliments and by doing good

deeds. Your friend will feel better after having been in your

Doing what's right today means no regrets tomorrow

Oh here is one my sis Barb just told me the top of my blog ..there is place where you can type in a word ask to search my blog to found theses pictures to do with the word....example : wedding --would bring up any pictures to do with that word ..that is so neat it might be easier than going thru the old archives. Thanks Barb...she is always helping and encouraging me.

Well here are a few more pictures of the ring bearer can see it don't bother him...he was ready for action. Here are the moms getting ready to share in Bob and Sharley's special day.

Here are a few photos from the photographer of the couple and their wedding party.

Again Bob and Sharley we all wish you the best now and in the future...let your love grow.
Here are a few things to think about:

Friends celebrate the things
they have in common and delight
in the things that make them different.

Special friends have a gift
for bringing beauty into our lives.
Like friendship, all the nicest gifts
come from the heart.
The thoughtfulness of a friend
can make an ordinary day

Friendship is often like a soft breeze
that soothes and refreshes the spirit.

To your enemy...forgiveness.
To your opponent...tolerance.
To a friend...your heart.
To a customer...service.
To all
To every child...a good example.
To yourself...respect.
Mark 11:24
"Whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have recieved it,
and it will be yours."
If ever looking for a good screen saver or a card with meaning look at website Crosscards

It offers lots of great things..
