June was a special month

So many of our family members have birthdays in June. My son starts off the birthdays on the 12th (he was 44). Then Gil was next, on the 17th. Mama's birthday is the 22nd so we took our motorhome to Bastrop and camped at the City RV Park for four days so we could visit with her and my sister.

Some ladies from my high school graduation class decided to have lunch with me while I was in town. The lunch group grew quickly to 11 of us. What fun we had that day trying to catch up on each other and our families. We hope to get together more often and invite others in the area to join us. Thanks to Jeanette for setting up this first gathering of the "Girls of 65" for us BHS graduates from 1965.

Daddy is birthday was June 26th and he would have been 88 had Alzheimers not taken him from us in 2004. I know he probably does not celebrate birthdays in heaven, but we think of him often on this planet and the loss we had when he left. Mama, Judy and I visited the cemetery there in Bastrop where he, my sharecropping grandparents, my dear aunt and uncle as well as my brother-in-law were laid to rest.

Then after we returned home, I had my own birthday on the 28th (I was born on Grandpa Clarence's birthday) but it was a rather quiet day for me. I am just very grateful for family and friends
