A lovely certificate,Barbara, and a bit of a history prompt for me...Her Majesty is Monarch over so much of the world!
It is so curious to realize that my
ancestors over 200 years ago lived so very near you, around Boston, England, yet ventured to what became Boston, MA, in New England to find freedom that you and I are blessed to share today on opposite sides of the pond :)
Thanks for checking in during your holiday!
Wishing continued joy for you and yours,
Gracie <3

I hope that you will get one and one for each of your grandchildren too!
Guess what?! I was in England for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and it was wonderful! So happy that we were able to be there during the celebrations! Do you know the second verse to God Save The Queen? The crowd in Eastbourne didn't! :-)
