The song, April Showers, is running through my head. All of this rain - and snow - is making lawns lush, but difficult to be able to mow them. I see that my cherry trees are starting to bloom. They will be loaded unless we get a hard freeze. John Joy got his onions and garlic in the garden at a great time!

Kipp and Dawn Huckaba spent some time in Great Falls with Dawn’s sister, Jenny Bear Medicine. Jenny was going to participate in a walk/run called Ice Breaker and asked Dawn to be her encourager. The time spent with each other was refreshing and encouraging for Jenny. Jenny lives and works in Browning in the medical field.

Next week, May 4th, is the National Day of Prayer. It is a special call for all of us to pray for our nation, its leaders, the military and others. (We should be praying anyway, but it is good reminder.)

The time is approaching very soon that the South Boulder Cemetery will be cleaned and mowed, etc., for the Memorial Day weekend and on into the summer. Items that need to be removed from the graves should be done soon. However, the way the wind has been blowing, some of them might be over the hill or blown completely away.

This is a reminder that the fund-raiser Garage Sale is this weekend at the Cardwell School. Since the students didn’t sell magazines, etc., (at least I was never asked to purchase anything), this should be a community effort to support the activity fund and perhaps buy some tables for the hot lunch program. It’s not too late to call Mrs. Moser at 498-5205 with items to donate.

Her name is Bailee and she was born premature. Along with that, she had some other issues. She is being adopted by Josh and Mallory Powell. When the Powells went to Salt Lake to greet their new daughter, they were told that they would probably be staying one month before little Bailee would be released to come home to Manhattan, Montana. Never under estimate God! Her response to her care is allowing her to travel home this week. “This is the LORD’S doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.” Psalm 118:23. Bailee’s new grandparents, Bill and Rhoda Powell spent several days in Salt Lake getting acquainted with her. Bailee’s brothers, Braxton and Brodie, are having fun at the Powell ranch until Josh and Mallory get home.

Dave and Marg Klem have opened their Mammoth ‘retreat home’ for the summer and have already hosted a number of people. It must be gorgeous up there, even with the snow. May will truly be a carpet of color with all of the wild flowers beginning to bloom.
