No Swines Here and Tears for a Friend.....

Well.......turned out i was having an asthma attach brought on by my allergies and the unexpected change in the weather Wednesday night.......
Thanks to everyone that sent me "get well wishes".....it's nice to know others were thinking about me!!
Went back to bed and slept until 11:00.....them threw some vegetable-beef soup into the crock pot and settled on the couch for the rest of the afternoon ...
Not a lot accomplished yesterday....but...i'm breathing much better today and ventured out to work......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'll never forget where i was on 9/11.......at work in the school district main headquarters.....the day had just gotten underway, when word came of the first plane crash...we hurried to a co-worker's work space..to turn on her 6" TV she used for watching the "soaps" on her lunch hour .... 25-30 of us crowded around speculating on what we had just seen on the "Today" show...
When Dorothy, a girl from Purchasing said...."I'll call my son...he works in the second tower....he'll know what's happening"...and off she went......as we continued to watch, we could hear her talking in the background........then the second plane appeared on the tiny screen and almost immediately we heard Dorothy yelling her sons name.........the second plane hit on the floor below him........you know the rest......
Pray for the families.....

  3. I'm glad you are better. Those allergies sure can play havoc with our health. Such a tragedy that your friend's son worked right there in the tower. It was an unbelievable day and one I'll never forget. I was so grateful to talk to each one of my children and find out they were ok. Some of them travel alot and thankfully not on that day. I'm waiting for my car to be serviced so I'm home til it's done and then will head off to our campsite.

  4. I'm so glad you're better. You must be to be tempted by Jitterbug. :)
    Your friend's story is a reminder to us all to never forget and to always hold our children close.

  7. Glad you are feeling better.

    That hit close to home to have a fellow worker whose son was in the second tower and to be talking to him when it happened. So sad for her.

    We shall never forget that horrible day in our nations history.

    Prayers go out today to all of the families of people who died that day. God Bless America.

    Our prayer is for peace.

  9. That is so sad. I was also working for a school. Being on the west coast, it was early in the morning when the planes hit. We did not know what was happing. I went to work. Every time an air plane went over head the students would tremble thinking the plane was going to hit our school next. (At that time I worked close to an airport and an air base.)
    One of my friends at church lost his sister in one of the towers, Her wedding date was september 12.

  12. Bless your heart....I hope you are definitely feeling much better by now.

    OMGoodness, I can't imagine the grief that mother went through on that day let alone what she continues to go through! I remember exactly where I was & what I was doing also. It's imprinted forever in my memory! I hope we never have to face another tragedy like that.
