As it is September 11th, I could not write a post and pretend that my thoughts are not heavy with memory of this day 10 years ago.
This will be my “I know exactly what I was doing” when the events of 9-11-2001 happened. This is a picture from a very old scrapbook of mine. This was taken on 9-12-2001, our firestation had the flags at half mass and my kids were gazing up to the flag.
A friend of mine asked to have this message shared:
“On this 10 th Anniversary I would wish everyone take a minute and remember what happened on 09/11/2001. Don’t ever forget. Be humbled by the loss and strengthened by the heroism. If you see and member of the armed forces, thank them for their service and be respectful of this date. The date that will forever be etched into our lives and our Generation. May the Angel’s fly high and the lost soar to the heavens with the glory and peace as their comfort.”
I just wanted to share my thoughts before delving into the Crafty things I have to share today.
Now, to switch gears, to my project for today’s post:
