Only a week before the anniversary of 9/11 and anyone who knows me knows that is a cause dear to my heart, I fought for the brave men and women who sacrificed themselves and for those who could not fight, and I am glad I did, despite the fact that I lost my legs, I would not go back and do things differently because I believe I needed to fight, and at least I came back to my beautiful family.
I watched some of the Republican convention last night, with my oldest daughter, and I really liked hearing both Palin and Gulliani introduce her, Gulliani gained my respect after the way I saw him handle the attrocity of 9/11 no one has had to deal with that kind of trauma before, but he managed, and managed well I believe, and Palin God bless her, is a woman who is not afraid to bring the wholesome values that this nation was founded on to the table, she is definitely going to get my voice, she is also going to prove to be a voice for the disabled and those who have fought, having a 19 year old Son who deploys on 9/11 and a five month old with Down Syndrome, Kayleigh and Keith both got a kick out of little piper licking her hand and then smoothing down her baby brothers hair, that was just to cute, but as I said I like the fact that she is a believer and is not afraid to bring that to the table.
I am sitting here writing this while I wait for Keith to get back from the office, because we're planning on going out to eat as a family, and then going to a show, we just need to spend time together as a family, and enjoying a nice meal and watching a good movie sounds like a great treat, maybe it will get my mind off the sorrow I feel as we face the next anniversary of 9/11.
I am glad that I am here though, glad I made it home from the war, (not in one piece LOL but home just the less and I have more things to be grateful for than I have to be sorry about, and I am blessed indeed.
Kayleigh excepted Christ into her heart at the begining of the Summer, just a couple of short months ago, and she is really doing great in her walk with Jesus, she reads her Bible everyday before school and at night before she goes to bed, (sadly she reads her Bible more than I read mine) but she got in trouble today, suspended actually for brining her Bible to School, it is just maddening, and it hurt her too, since when does a child brining a Bible to school warrant being suspended? I talked to her principal but she wouldn't budge, I am seriously thinking of starting to homeschool Kayleigh because this just isn't fair.
Well I am going to go, I heard Keith's car pull up and I would like to go greet my husband, and tell him what happened with Kayleigh, he is a lawyer maybe there is something we can do.
In Christs Love
