My Mother, My Friend

Happy Birthday to my Mom!!

(My Mommy and me Dec. '72 - I was 4 months old - in Rowland Hts., CA)
I know I'm always a day late and a dollar short...but I wanted to wish my mom the happiest birthday ever! I was out of town over the weekend, so I'm posting this wish a day late! Yesterday was the day the world was blessed with the gift of my mom! The number of lives she has touched is infinite, I'm sure. She is the most compassionate, caring, loving person I've had the pleasure of knowing, and I have the honor of calling her "mom".
She molded me in so many ways that went completely undetected until I reached motherhood myself. I'm proud to say that I am so much like my mom, and hope to be more like her in the future. I wish that everyone in the world could know her, her heart is enormous and I think the world of her!
All my love, mom! You're the best!

Patriot Day 2008

Have you forgotten? More and more, I feel like the world has forgotten the tragedy that rocked our very foundation 7 years ago. I know they say that "time heals all wounds", but this is one wound that needs to be revisited, so that we don't forget those that gave their lives that day, and all those who have given their lives since, in the name of "freedom". Do we stop to realize how blessed we are to have been placed on this earth at this time? We should never take that for granted. We have a responsibility to our posterity to preserve this land, our freedom, so that they may experience all that we have had the priviledge of having, as our forefathers did for us.
I hope you will all take a moment today, to remember the fallen, to send thanks above for all that we have, and to do your part in preserving this great country and all that it stands for.
