12 years later

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
--Brian Jacques, Taggerung







Peace and grace to all those who suffered on September 11, 2001. May God have mercy on us all.

  12. Thanks for your nice note about my foot. I am doing everything the doctor gave me to do and I am realizing that only time can heal it. I am also being eagle eyed about wet floors.
