Staci, do you remember this stamp?? Staci bought this flower for me on sale somewhere, I think. I know it was several years ago. I hadn't really used it before today. I don't do much with solid stamps, but I'm trying to branch out.
I've had a lot on my mind these past couple of days. I don't know why the rememberance of the those who died because of the terrorist attacks seemed more significant this year. I guess it is because I'm already going thru an emotional time, just like I was six years ago. Then, I was just about to turn 39. That was a tough birthday for me. And, although I did not know anyone personally who lost loved ones, I agonized just like the rest of the country over fellow Americans who were hurting. Honestly, I was changed by the event. It was a turning point for the way I parent. I began to deliberately enjoy my kids more. I think it changed things in my marriage too.
I'm sleepy and it's dark. Otherwise I would take a picture of a card I wanted to show you. It will remind you of scenes all across America in the days and weeks after 9*11*2001.
In the meantime, say a prayer for those Americans who lost a loved one and who hurt a little more than the most of us at this time of year.
See you in the morning...
Forgot to mention, my son had a sinus infection and an ear infection. A couple of doses of antibiotic each day and a little R&V ( rest and video games) and he's as good as new.
