I find it hard to believe it has been 14 years since our whole country was in shock at what we were watching on our television sets. Has it really been that long? It doesn’t seem like it at all to me. It seems like yesterday as those images are forever burned into my memory as I’m sure it is with most of America.
Well here’s to all of those that lost their lives through a meaningless act of violence. Here’s to those that survived. Here’s to all the heroes that perished and those that survived. Here’s to the families left behind and the children born after the tragedy that will never know their fathers. Here’s to our country and hopes that no one, not even anyone in another country has to sit in horror as evil attacks for no reason. God bless us all.
Let’s hope the groundhog does not see his shadow this morning. That would mean that Spring will come early. This winter has wore me out with all the cold and snow – I’ ready for some serious Spring weather!
Thanksgiving is when we’re suppose to give thanks for the blessings of the year. Well that’s something we all need to do every day. I sure do. I’m so thankful for my daughter and my wonderful family. I just don’t know what I would do without them and don’t want to find out either any time soon.
As I’m sure you have figured out, my grandmother is my most special person in the world (after my daughter.) She’s my rock and life just wouldn’t be the same without her so I am so thankful she’s still in my life and hope and pray she will be for many, many more years.
Here’s hoping you have a wonder Thanksgiving. Just a little humor to help make your day better a little better.
This is the first year I have been old enough to vote and I DID IT!! I hope you did too. My grandmother told me that this is one of the most important things I can do to help our country. It doesn’t matter if the person I voted for wins or loses, my voice was heard either way. That’s a pretty empowering feeling to know that my one tiny voice will be heard. I just hope the best man wins no matter which one it is. I just hope they help all of us and not a select few.
I went to a local retail store and I couldn’t believe my eyes. They had about 5 times more Christmas stuff out than they did Halloween stuff and that even includes all the candy. Why is it that it seems every year they put the Christmas stuff out earlier and earlier? I guess they’re trying to catch people while they still have a little money hoping they’ll start their Christmas shopping early.
Well I don’t get my Christmas fund money until the middle of November so I couldn’t start shopping for Christmas if I wanted to yet. You know, I could start putting stuff on layaway. What am I saying? Here I was fussing and now I’m thinking of layaway. Shame on me!!
