I have been busy canning tomatoes and rotel style tomatoes this week.  I did peppers last week.  It's been so hot that I am afraid we won't get much more from our garden unless some rain shows up soon.   We are just thankful that we have well water to water our garden with and don't have to pay for that on our city water bill.  It does seem that garden's seem to prefer when God waters them more than when we do!

I have several things to be thankful for in my life.   Today is Father's Day and I want to thank God for the wonderful Dad he gave me.  My dad is retired from the navy, he was gone quite a bit when I was younger but when he was home, he was there for my brother and I, we did lots of family things together and I will never forget that.   That said about Dad, I also have to say that later in life when my parents divorced, God gave me a good stepdad too! 

More blessings this week - my granddaughter Caitlyn went back to Boston for follow up test this week.  The power of prayer is an awesome thing!   The reflux is gone from her kidney, she only has to be cathed 3 times a week instead of 3 times a day and she should be off of her daily antibiotic by the end of the week!
