Although referred to in the plural, primarily because Abraham Lincoln's birthday was also in February (February 12), Presidents Day is celebrated the third Monday in February to honor our first President, George Washington, who was born on February 22.
If you would like to learn more about this man who is called the father of our country, here are links to my reviews of a couple of books about him, Life of Washington by Anna C. Reed, a peek into his life and faith, and Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser, a wonderful book that is fiction but contains many historical details about both Martha and George Washington.
I'm in my "fabulous fifties" and my husband and I have been married 25 years. We have a son and a daughter who are both in college. so we are reluctantly entering the empty-nest years. I was an RN in my former (pre-kids) life which comes in handy as I serve in our church's care ministry.
Chatting over a cup of coffee with a friend to encourage and support one another (and share a laugh or even a tear) is one of my favorite things to do.
