I meant to post a 'Happy Mother's Day' message yesterday. I was having so much fun, I forgot! I had a really pleasant day and got some lovely gifts. My princess gave me these lovely flowers.
My wonderful husband gave me a new gun! I realize I don't talk about guns much on this blog. It really doesn't fit with the 'theme' of what this blog is all about. However, even though I don't talk about it much, I have to admit that guns are a big part of my life! I love to shoot, I am a certified NRA pistol instructor and I get excited over a new gun. So, even if you are not 'into' guns, please bear with me as I show you my brand new one.
I wanted a small gun that I could carry when I don't have my purse with me. (I have a Pistol Packing Mama purse that holds my both my Glock 26 or Glock 19 without a problem.) I also wanted to be able to carry it when wearing a dress. The size of this gun works for both situations. It is a Glock 42, which is a new model. It is a 380 caliber. Here it is in my new ankle holster, which I am happy to say is quite comfortable.
I also got a gift from my church. This summer all members of my church are getting a free subscription to Ancestry.com, findmypast.com, and myheritage.com for one year! Because I am the Family History Consultant for my ward, my subscription started this past week.
I am thrilled to say that yesterday I found 35 new ancestors I didn't know about! Some go back as far as the mid 1600's! That brings the total number of ancestors I have found to 595. I don't say this enough, so let me announce to all that I think my church rocks!
In addition, my husband made me a wonderful dinner and we also took the princess for a lovely walk in the woods. It couldn't have been a more perfect Mother's Day! I am very thankful that Heavenly Father gave it to me!
