Sunday Reflections…

I was thinking about my dad just now… What would I have done without him? What would my son have done without me? Dads are one of, if not THE most important figure in a boys life! Thank God for Dad! 

I was always hanging around my Dad, even at the Fire station. He taught me how to be a man. Now I have a son of my own. With my Dads help ❤️ He has turned out well too 😊

“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”

   ~ Billy Graham

Happy Fathers Day to all the ‘Dads’ out there…

Have a GREAT Fathers Day! I’m going to lunch with my dad and my son to celebrate 🎉  

PS: Enjoy the socks and ties 😉

Special Days Worthy Of Note…

Today is a special day worthy of note. My grandad was in Normandy on D-Day and his group landed on Omaha Beach. He always said he would never forget that day! Another reason he wouldn’t forget is that today, June 6th. is also my Moms Birthday! 🇺🇸💥

Momma loves to laugh and have fun. I hope today is a great Birthday celebration for her! ❤️

Thanks to all the men that fought so hard for our freedom on this day! We lost around 4,400 men and over 6,600 men were wounded on D-Day alone! 

Thank you! God Bless America! 🇺🇸💥

Happy Birthday Mom! 🎈Thanks for all you do ❤️

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s #Throwbackthursday again & today I want  to mention one of my childhood hero’s – my Grandfather! He was a local butcher (Piggly Wiggly), a farmer & a very good gardener! I learned much of what I do today working with him in the gardens and in the field. He was also a decorated war hero, but he never talked about it much until I was older and even then I had to drag stories and info out of him. He was truly one of the “Greatest Generation”!

Patches, pins & medals from my Grandfathers military unit. His unit was instrumental in WW2 & saw action all over Europe. He was definitely part of the “Greatest Generation”!

Here’s one of the only pictures I have of him with his full unit. He was standing (A team) & this was right before they deployed to Europe.

There’s my grandad with his hand on his rifle strap. He was in the thick of things from D-Day & the Battle of the Bulge through till the end of the war. Then he came home and spent a peaceful life farming and cutting meat.

So here’s to F.D. Brinkley! ❤️ Love and miss ya’! #Throwbackthursday
