Day 52

Today will be a busy one. I'm heading out the door this morning to go pick apples at a nearby orchard. Nothing like WORKING for my fruit, hey?!

Still, I can't let today pass, without pausing to honor the memory of all those directly affected by the 9/11 attacks.

I'm remembering all those who parished tragically nine years ago today, and their surviving families, with prayers.

I'm also thinking about our military people today, past and present, dedicated and patriotic, having served our country, and those serving her still today - especially abroad. Thank you, one and all, for your service! They have my prayers every day, but especially so today.

I'm praying, also, for our police and firemen, those sacrificing souls who put themselves in harms way for our sakes, right here at home. They were the hero-victims of that tragic day.


  1. Praying here alongside you.

    So, what are you going to do with all of them apples?

    Have a good day, Never Forget!

  2. Such a sad day it was. And still is.

    Have fun picking apples :) Nothing like a work out that accomplishes something! I'm also curious what you're doing with them all...

  3. Nice post. I am so jealous you get to pick your apples! Now I want to find somewhere around here to take my boy to pick apples!

  4. Thinking of them also.
    Apple picking! LOVE apples. Have a great day!
