On Veterans Day We Chicks Say Thank You

Beth and I took our delivery to the women's veterans shelter today and met four lovely women who are the very first residents of the facility. Dell greeted us warmly at the door and invited us in to join them with a snack and something to drink.

Kathy gave us the grand tour and showed us around their new home. This four season room was built entirely by women. The new furniture was just delivered this morning so it hasn't been arranged yet but when it's finished they will have a cozy spot to watch TV by the fire. That's Kathy pointing out the pot belly stove in the corner.
The residents have all their meals together as a family in this beautifully decorated dining room or.....
in their warm country kitchen. That's Dell on the right and Kathy on the left. Kathy found some things in her favorite color, purple and Dell seemed drawn to the brightly colored hat and scarf.
Mary, in the middle, and Maggie on the far right are the other two residents. So for now they have just these four ladies but they are expecting more soon. The house can accomodate 12 and it seems like a warm and loving place for these women to get back on track.
On behalf of all of us Chicks I would like to thank these women for their dedication and sacrifices they have made in their lives to protect the rest of us and our freedoms.
God bless you!
