September 11th!!!! This day marks.....

1. My dad's birthday!!! :-) He is the best dad ever!! :-)

First and foremost I love my dad so much, this has always been your day. :-)

Dear Dad,

With all that's going on in the world one thing that you've always made known to me that I am your pride and joy and you will always love me. My daddy was my hero from a very early age. And when I got my "b's" and "d's" mixed up you were dabby. :-) You kept me safe and happy and brought me home sprinkled donuts, because you knew they were my favorite. :-) Every manly thing you did I looked up to you. You taught me important life lessons, and took some time for fun. It helped me build a firm foundation that I can now stand on. My dad is my hero now that I'm fully grown the bills come to my house with my name on them. :-) I love you and respect you. You are the best man I have ever known. I knew that when I married LOML he was a great man, just like my father, dad, my hero you'll always be. :-)

Love you!

2. This day 9 years ago when the U.S. was attacked, which resulted in over 3,000 deaths.

It hardly seems that it could be that long ago I was sitting in government class as a sophmore in high school, and the T.V. was flipped on in class and we sat there in awe! WOW, I feel old now. It's crazy to me that 9/11 is in my students textbooks, too! Growing up I read many of the Chicken Soup for the Teenage soul books. My MIL gave me, "Chicken Soup for the Soul of America." Stories to Heal the Heart of our Nation.

Or as Mayor Giuliani says, " It was New York City's worst week. But it was New York City's best week. We have never been braver. We have never been stronger."

3. The annual IOWA vs. IOWA STATE Football game today was 35-7! Go HAWKS!!! :-)

Isn't this a beautiful thing.....
