"A Moving Story" Chapter 4: Board by Board!

"Mama cut out pictures of houses for years,

from Better Homes and Gardens magazine,

plans were drawn and concrete poured,

nail by nail and board by board,

Daddy gave life to Mama's dream."

lyrics by: Miranda Lambert from "House That Built Me"

Our hope for our children...
That this house becomes more than a memory for them...
that it will be a place where they can dream & play...
a place they can always "come home" ...
a place filled with tender love and care ...
"board by board".

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
Many Blessings!
