Look at all my wrinkles! :)
I spent one on one time with each of my nieces for their birthday and then they chose their birthday gift.  Each one wanted to go to the Mall and just look at everything.  They all wanted to go look at the puppies!

A beautiful sunset in Idaho!

We had a wonderful meal at my cousin's house and came out to see that beautiful sunset above!

What a treat to play BINGO with my aunt and all the other residents at her new home!

My Aunt received the Resident of the Month award while we were there!  I named her "Miss August".  She was tickled!

BINGO time!!

Another wonderful trip!  Time with mom is priceless!  She is such a trooper because it's getting harder to walk and keep up the pace lately.  Her Parkinson's is settling in more and more.  I count it a blessing each day I have with her!  Love you mom!

I remember the hubby calling for me to come downstairs....he was watching Good Morning America and they were showing the first tower on fire.  Then as I came down to watch, I saw the second plane crash into the second tower.  What was I watching??  I couldn't believe my eyes and then I saw what looked like people jumping out of the towers, people running in the streets and then the tower fall like it was imploding because of a dynamite blast.  I asked the hubby, "Is that real?  Did that building just fall down and then the second one fell."  I was in shock.  I couldn't believe my eyes and was asking how that big of a building could have fallen down so quickly.  It was hard to believe watching it on television and still hard to believe when we saw it a year later....the hole where the buildings were was HUGE and the buildings all around it had windows blown out of whole sides of the buildings.  It was hard to imagine that two planes did this.  And that a few men who hated the USA so much would want to hurt innocent people and kill themselves. 

So many things in life are a mystery and we never know the whys of it all.  One thing I do know is that God uses all things for His good and our home is in Heaven.  We need to be ready when the time comes...because no one know about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  (Matthew 24:36)  Have you shared the one true God and his son, Jesus with your family and friends who you want to be in heaven with you?  Be ready!  Because in the end...I know who wins this war on earth...Jesus Christ.  He's coming again to take His church (you and me) home to heaven.  Remembering today although it's sad...many are with Him today who died in 9/11 and many have come to know Him because of 9/11.

Have a blessed weekend!
