Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Monday Memories...

Five years ago...
I was asleep and hubby came home from work. We watched in disbelief all day...I was 3 months pregnant with Hawger, wondering what kind of world I was bringing a child into. I watched day and night the better part of a week, wondering...what next? Ah but then, the calm after the storm. A country united! Flags flying!

Today...
I watched my best friend dance with her father at her mother's funeral. It was the most poignant moment I have ever witnessed first-hand. I almost felt I was intruding. It was a celebration of a woman who truly lived her life fully every day.

Tomorrow...
I will hug my own mother tighter...
I will smile as I remember my friend..Linda Lou RIP...
I will create memories for MY children to last a lifetime...
I hope the survivors left standing after September 11 will do the same...

Gratitudes:
Life
Death
Everything in between
And that the best is yet to come =)
