Evil in the Hearts of Men

Today we remember the evil that was done 9 years, we remember those who were taken from us, and we remember the heroism of those who rose to the challenge that day and every day since.

Icarus II

In the darkness I rise, long before the dawn
I was dreaming of home and the life I led
I can hear the sound, of the engines roar
And I crave the embrace of my empty bed
Where I'm safe (there I'm safe)

But the call is clear, and the task is set
And my enemies wait in the dark sky
Do they fear the same fear, do they dream like us
Do they long for the day when it's over
And they're safe

Homemade bread fresh out of the oven.

Apple picking season.
Those who continually rescue us from danger.
The freedom to be a jerk and the wisdom not to be.
Joy comes in the morning and the mourning.
What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday

The thoughtful young lady who stopped in the Sam's Club parking lot to pick up Caspian's blanket and her momma who said, good job now help her put her stuff in the car. She had the cart half empty before I was done strapping the kids in.
The kids had fun on the cruise.
Apple picking season.
Caramel apples.
The State Fair. All kinds of fun to be had there.
Catching up with old friends are realising how much you still have in common.
Wise council.
What are you thankful for?
