Heart To Heart Card Drive~Blog Candy For "you"

On Cammie's blog, she is having a "Heart To Heart Card Drive to thank all the caretakers of Alzheimer's patients....we are to send a card to "thank" the person that is such a wonderful caretaker for this terrible disease.......though this has not affected my family directly yet (and hopefully never will) I have a friend that has a Mother with this...I know she misses her Mother terribly and would give about anything to have her back to her "normal"'s very hard to see a loved one with this card goes out to her.....this one is for you "Linda"!

Now hop on over to Cammie's blog and join in this fantastic cause and spread the nice of Cammie to organize this and to think of all the hard working caregivers....."hats off to you Cammie"!!!

Immortality ~Remember 9-11-01

I debated about posting about 911...not because I don't care, but because of all the hate the media has been reporting about concerning 911.....I would rather hear about each person that lost their lives that day...who they were...what they wanted out of life....who loved them...who misses them...each unique person had a story of their own...lets remember my word today is "Immortality".....definition meaning "The quality or state of being immortal"...unending existense...hearafter...eternity......I think a fitting word, as the brave souls we lost will always have an unending existence in all our lives,
  Do you remember where you were that day, what you were doing??   I do, it was an ordinary day for me at the daughter called to see if I had heard the news.....I called my boss and we were able to turn the TV on...just in time to see the Pentagon being hit......we were horrified...I called my Mom...she was ironing.....she was 74 then, 83 now...has it really been 9 seems like yesterday.....a day I hope none of us ever has to endure heart goes out to all the families of the lost ones......the picture above is from my Iris......the name...... "Immortality.

My Jar Swap Goodies ~ Thank You Victoria

Remember a few posts back I mentioned I was joining a  "Jar Swap" ??   My swap partner was Victoria you may visit her blog HERE.....While I was on vacation my jar was full of scrumptious goodies...look at that lilac yummy seam binding....and that wonderful lilac it.....and how thoughtful that I received my name in scrabble tiles......lots of fun and very useful goodies for "me"........I have to say I am a bit embarrassed though that I am "late" in sending mine to Victoria, but its mailed, she should receive it soon, and I  think it will be worth the wait, it was as fun to put together for her and mail as it was to receive mine....I just love giving gifts, do you?   Go to the link if you would like to see some of the other jar swaps....I am sure Victoria will post hers as soon as she receives it.......thank you Victoria!!
