Time FLIES!!!!!

I technically should have posted this yesterday but time got away from me! The reception that we had yesterday for all the first responders went over GREAT!!!!  Those men and women were so precious and the little reception that we did is no where near close to enough to thank them for what they do everyday!

I can't believe that 10 years has passed since the 9-11 attacks on our country. Ten years ago I was a JR in high school.  I was in student council that morning and we were outside raising the flag when our sponser came running outside to tell us to lower it to half mast.  We asked why and he told us just to do it and come inside.  When we went in we were shocked at what we saw on TV.  The first tower had been hit and not long after that the second...that day seemed to last forever as we sat in class after class just staring at the TV.  Everything I saw brought up so many emotions but the main one being pure anger!!!  How could someone be so violent to do this???? Then I was extremely sad as I thought about the families that had lost loved ones....This country would NEVER be the same!

 At that moment I knew that my precious cousin that had just finished up Army Ranger training would be called to action!  That caused me to worry ALOT for the next 2 years!  I was proud of him though because he was willing to sacrifice his own life to fight for the freedom we have. 

It was amazing how after this happened people RAN back to church and were seeking God!  This country seemed to wake up!!! Now 10 years later you wonder what has happened because it feels like this country has gone back to the old ways of "I can do it without God" and that is what is the most scary!!!!!  May we NEVER forget what happened 9-11-01 and may we NEVER forget that it was GOD who was there in the midst!!!!

A LONG time coming...

So I am a blog SLACKER lately!  I have had so much going on that I have neglected my poor little blog. (so sad)  There hasn't been that much exciting stuff to blog about but I just haven't had time to blog about anything.

ANYWAY time to catch up!!!!  I want to thank my amazing friends for helping me deal with getting out of the HORRIBLE relationship I was in.  (I can say that now that I am not blind anymore and can see things as they actually were)  My friends have been AMAZING...  from letting me vent, to telling me some much needed things, to just being there, to making fun....
This picture shows just how he felt about Casey....He was giving an impression of him (LOL)

I love ALL of my friends from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!

I have been spending some much needed catch up friend time with everyone lately since I am no longer stuck up my jerk ex boyfriends butt! 

This guy is very special to me and he has helped me more than he will EVER know!  Thanks P!!!!

On another note it is my FAVORITE time of the year!!!!  My b'day is coming up......

I love love LOVE Bama football and I have already bought some cute new outfits for the season and hope to get more for my b'day! (hint hint)

Another thing that is going on is we are hosting a We Will Remember service at our church this Sunday for 9/11 and all the "first responders".  I am so excited about this!!!!
Well...that is all I have for now!  More to come soon I PROMISE!!!!!
