  First I want to send a HUGE   thank you to all of you   that have entered the party… I find myself visiting your blogs during the night on my own “mama time” and I am SO inspired by your creativity,  humor,  journalism, and willingness to share.     Now, I have to pick just one blog… and this time around even took me longer than last month.   As a  matter of fact, it was almost 10:00 pm when I made my final decision…     Here it comes!   So Jaime girl, I think YOU CAN BLOG!       …And she does at her fabulous blog Crafty Scrappy Happy.       This is why I think her blog ROCKS!   1. Perfect SIMPLICITY     Do you know when you go to a store and you find yourself going  in circles at least three or four times before one of the employees comes towards you and asks the magical question:   Can I help you to find something?   “Yes… -you say- Could you tell me where is your sign showing where is the toilet paper?”   Well when it comes to blogging no employee is going to show up and ask you how can I help you?

Never FORGET…

  I remember clearly where I was 10 years ago… I remember what I was doing when my heart stopped for a minute and a sense of emptiness, anger and unbelief took over.   The difference between people and heroes are that heroes never die, their actions, their words, their memories keep them alive forever and that is what September 11th gives us all… thousands of heroes that will never be forgotten…     What happened on September 11th was more than a horrible terrorist attack against our nation  it was the most coward attack to basic human rights…   The rights of a father to hold their child one more time, the right of a wife to say I love you for the last time, the right of a mother to be to simply sing her first lullaby…   So to me instead of death, September 11th gave me pure love for life.   The desire to live today fully, the opportunity to say good bye with more intent, to hold my loved ones more often, to look inside of my heart and let the best of it come out.       So thank you to you heroes that touched the lives of so many of us that day… and thank to you out there that choose to make a difference in those around you every day.   … I...
