I WAS THINKING…
about the tragic event that happened on September 9, 2011. Everyone remembers 9-11, even what they were doing when they heard the news. It affected so many lives, even until today. I know I can’t think about 9-ll without feeling sad. But today I also have reason to celebrate that date. Four years ago on September 11th, my beautiful great-grand daughter was born. Life goes on.

This I’ve Learned
When we were young our biggest attraction to the others was often how cute they were. Perhaps many used this thought when they chose their life partner. Sadly, “cute’ is too often temporary.
When we learn not to judge anyone by their appearance, especially people we meet for the first time, but look for their positive traits, it will be a “feel good” thing for everyone. Think about it!
