It has heated up here.And so far my headaches are leaving me alone. Then again, I am NOT hanging out in the sun either, but I used to not be able to even be in the sun at all, so this is a huge improvement since the neurologist increased the Topomax. I no longer have daily migraines. Hip hip hooray! Monthly migraines with my menstruals, yes I do have those.
I have news! Fantastic news my friends. Jacob, our oldest is a nurse now!! Yes, he has graduated from Marquette University.👨🎓 Woo hoo!🎉 AND once he passes the State Exam, he has been hired and will be working at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. This has been his goal the entire time he has been in university. To be a pediatric nurse.👨⚕️ We are very proud of him.
I have a finish to share with you. My June wreath. I will be making it up into a flatfold for the cubby shelf. I just did not get it done in time for picture taking for this post.

I designed a June Poodle and stitched her up. All I am saying is, this one is my favorite so far. You'll see.🐩
A novel based on a true story, a mother and daughter risk their lives to provide shelter to two families and a German soldier--all unbeknownst to each other--in a tiny two-room house in Sokal, Poland, during the Nazi invasion.
Based on a true story, MY MOTHER'S SECRET is a profound, captivating, and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the clever and "righteous" mother and daughter who teamed up to save them.
Franciszka and her daughter, Helena, are unlikely heroines. They are simple people who mind their own business and don't stand out from the crowd. Until 1939, when crisis strikes. The Nazis have invaded Poland and they are starting to persecute the Jews. Providing shelter to a Jew has become a death sentence. And yet, Franciszka and Helena decide to do just that. In their tiny, two-bedroom home in Sokal, Poland, they cleverly hide one Jewish family of two brothers and their wives in their pigsty out back, another in a makeshift cellar under the kitchen floorboards, and a defecting German soldier in the attic--each group completely unbeknownst to the others. For everyone to survive, Franciszka will have to outsmart her neighbors and the German commanders standing guard right outside her yard.
Told simply and succinctly from four different perspectives, MY MOTHER'S SECRET is a reminder that you don’t have to be extraordinary to make a difference. You can become extraordinary by making a difference.
This book was inspired by the true story of Franciszka Halamajowa, who, with her daughter, saved the lives of fifteen Jews in Poland during the Second World War. She also hid a young German soldier in her attic at the same time. Before the war, there were six thousand Jews in Sokal, Poland. Only thirty survived the war and half of those did so because of Franciszka.
Oh yes, the orthopedic doctor decided it is too early to do a manipulation if he does one. I must keep plugging away at the physical therapy. sigh. This takes soooooooo long.
I thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog my friends. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another
