I don't have many words today. It's a day to reflect on what happened to our country 10 years ago today. It's hard to believe it's been 10 years. I remember it like it was yesterday. We had friends visiting us from Iowa. We were living in Pensacola, Florida at the time and Russ was a flight instructor. He had gone to work that beautiful morning and I was entertaining our friends at home. Brandon was just 9 months old and it was time to feed him. We were all sitting in our living room watching Good Morning America just as I still do today. We watched the horrific events unravel on the TV from the start. I remember sitting there in disbelief. I tried to call Russ and I couldn't get through to him. Once I did he wasn't sure if he would be able to leave the base. It was in lock down. We were glued to the TV the rest of the day. I'm finding myself glued to the TV again today.
My heart aches for all the innocent people that we lost that day and for those that continue to make sacrifices to protect our freedom. I'm so proud of my Prince and all of our service men as they make huge sacrifices everyday and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice protecting us.
This card is for my Prince. I think it's pretty patriotic.
Can you hear me screaming loudly about these latest downloads? Holy Cow these are just the coolest ever. Love these and if I'm not mistaken, these are no where in a catalog…. know what I mean?
You can view the Online Digital Store as well in case you missed anything GREAT lately!
Here is another card I made for Russ. I'm trying to make him smile everyday with a card from me. The kids have been putting letters in the cards too. I want to thank all of you for your continued support, amazing emails, and prayers. We appreciate you SO much. I do forward many of the emails to Russ. I want him to know how everyone continues to support him and all of our troops. It's important. It's what keeps them going EVERYDAY!!
Hope he doesn't mind the button. He does know there are two things I have to have on a card. A piece ribbon or a button. Otherwise my card just seems to be NAKED. I think these will perk him up and make his sweet dimples show.
Have a perfect Tuesday. The kids are playing hard, involved in camps and saying goodbye to two of their friends this week. Just rip my heart out!!! I'll explain later. It's another life lesson in the making.
