Stick Horse Cowgirl V : Captivated by Immigrant Daughter's Story


Sunny weather induced outdoor activities this weekend at Pinnacle Mountain State Park. Still a little too cool for comfort for me - Hello month of May! Will you please hurry up with your warm 75 to 80 degree weather that I prefer? Here is grandaughter and I at the park with our dog, Dudley.





Anyway, with my cup of tea, I've been perusing blogs this Sabbath Day--no housework duties! If you haven't checked out "C"'s mother-in-law's blog at immigrant daughter then you are missing a real treat! She tells the compelling story of her upbringing as a Greek immigrant and the love story between she and her husband of 58 years. I'm captivated! Hope you'll visit her! Her story is worth hearing.

Fondly,
V

Oh I will, right after I say hello to you! May is coming. Hope that March and April have something to offer, too. ;>

I love Immigrant Daughter's stories. What a blessing for her family. I wish I had asked my parents' more questions.

Hey Cowgirl V - I've been following Immigrant Daughters stories, but have not been able to visit much lately. I've missed a couple of stories. Will have to catch up. Pretty park - bet your granddaughter and your dog enjoyed the day out even if YOU thought it was too cold! Warm weather is right around the corner! Have a great week ~

We also had a taste of spring this weekend, but it will be first in April that it for sure take the reign.;)
I will try to visit the blog you mention, a story on any immigrant is very close to my heart and I can relate to the sentiments of love as well.;)
Have a lovely Monday,

I have enjoyed her stories, but for some reason have missed some lately. I agree how important it is for kids to know about their heritage. Trouble is sometimes they don't care until there is no one left to tell the story. That is where a blog comes in I think. Like you I can't wait for spring.

I have been following her stories, and I am so glad she is telling them, we need to hear these stories of families of earlier America. Her stories have been a blessing!

V -- So nice to see a picture that actually looks like spring! We still have some snow laying around and ice on the lake. Send some "spring" our way, will you? :)
