We’d like to get more folks on the dance floor. Our party has dwindled & I’m sure that’s largely due to bloggers coming and going in Blogosphere, but I’m going to set this challenge to ALL my readers PLEASE bring a friend & tell a friend to come on over and join our party & let’s all have the greatest boogie party ever!  Have you asked anyone lately to attend the 4M party? We’d love to fill the dance floor to capacity! If you haven’t done so, then let me challenge you to hook at least one new person to come boogie with the crew. It’ll be a blast!  WOO HOO!!!

MY (Our broken hearts) BROKEN HEART….!!! MY MEMORY – GOD SAVE OUR PEOPLE!!!

The day 9-11 happened I was getting ready for work… I was semi-retired, but I still worked for my 82 yr. old boss.  An old attorney who just wouldn’t retire because he said it would kill him.  So every day after he closed down his office he moved his office to his huge house in Northbrook.  His house reminded me of Tara in “Gone with the Wind” with the Pillars out in front (4) and the winding staircase too with the huge chandelier in the foyer.  That house was enormous and they had a music room, all walls in their were windows and a sitting room and a baby grand piano.  The glass door lead to an outdoor pool was fantastic, which I was allowed to swim in every day if I wanted too!  What a great job.  Every morning he’d tell me his war stories in court.  He was a great lawyer in his days and every morning he told me his war stories in front of the judge.  It was so  interesting and so was he and he was funny too!!!  I came to work in any kind of attire or make-up which was great… saved me money.  We would talk all morning and then at lunchtime he’d go downstairs and I’d go in my office and have my lunch and play solitaire or whatever on my computer until 3:00 p.m. and then it was home time.  I worked in Northbrook and I lived in Aurora back then.  He also gave me a car to use because he lived so far.  There’s more, but not now I prefer to talk about 9/11…..

That money as I got ready for work… and I always listened to the news as I got ready for really the reports on traffic & weather, but that  morning was different I watched the second airplane hit the second tower and I plopped down on the sofa with my jaw on the floor and when I realized it was real I started to cry and called my boss.  He said yes, I know, but in your condition you need to come here where we can take care of you.  Wasn’t he the very best so I got ready and off in traffic I went, but where was the traffic, where was the planes and everything!  No traffic… it was almost spooky… no not almost it… WAS SPOOKY!  I got to my boss’ house and the Mrs. gave me a hug and we were both trembling.  She said she didn’t know why he wanted me to come, but give me a hug too!!!  We talked a bit… he gave me another hug and asked if I was okay to drive and gave me my check and he gave me a bit more that week.  So I got back on the road to go home and when my babies came home from school I hugged each one when they entered the door.  

As we watched the news every day for a couple of weeks it was like I didn’t know what to do with myself, but then I thought of something to do to keep me busy, so this is what I did to calm my nerves.

I crocheted our flag with a pillow, and it did calm my nerves considerably and my husband he donated $500 of our savings too, and he felt a lot better.  Our home was invaded by the sadness & the anger of 9/11.   My youngest daughter cried and we talked a lot.  We both felt better.  My son was a loner and he dealt with his feelings on his own, but he knew I was there for him.  And today… ahhhh yesssss…… today???  Every year it’s a very sad time for all of us, but all I can say now is God bless the Angels of 9/11 and their families they left here on earth.  God bless those heroic people that brought the last plane down prior to it’s destination.  God bless those heroes.  God bless all the other heroes who fought the smoke and fire and saving the people that they could and God bless all those who died in the Twin Towers Nightmare.  The people in the towers that couldn’t get out, and the people who jumped… God bless them and the fire-fighters and priests.  God bless us all and the person that is reading my post!  GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT AND MOST OF ALL GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!  AMEN!
