Fall

I’ve been living in Texas for 13 years now and Fall is one thing I really miss. I miss the leaves changing colors and the cold, crisp air. 

I will take a road trip to the North to see the Fall count lord again.

9/11

It’s hard to believe its been 16 years since the tragedy of 9/11 happened. 

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.

Here are some pictures to remember that day. 






Let us remember all who died that day. 

A total of 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks, including the 19 terrorist hijackers aboard the four airplanes.

At the World Trade Center, 2,763 died after the two planes slammed into the twin towers. That figure includes 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 New York City police officers and 37 Port Authority police officers who were struggling to complete an evacuation of the buildings and save the office workers trapped on higher floors.

At the Pentagon, 189 people were killed, including 64 on American Airlines Flight 77, the airliner that struck the building. On Flight 93, 44 people died when the plane crash-landed in Pennsylvania.

Here Is Your Sign

Well, my previous post was about being burnt by someone who I thought I could trust. 

I saw this and it told me what my next step should be. 

One year is too long to feel the way I have been. I will not let that person have that power over me anymore. 

Time to be free!

Trust

Trust, such a big word in my world.

I gave that trust to someone and it got thrown out the window. Not sure how or when I will give my trust to someone again. 

I need to move beyond what happened, but it’s hard. 

Mother Teresa — Humility List

I swear, the older I get, the more I want to live by these words. 

15 things you can do every day to grow in the virtue of humility, as taught by the great saint, Mother Teresa. 

1. Speak as little as possible about yourself.

2. Keep busy with your own affairs and not those of others.

3. Avoid curiosity.

4. Do not interfere in the affairs of others.

5. Accept small irritations with good humor.

6. Do not dwell on the faults of others.

7. Accept censures even if unmerited.

8. Give in to the will of others.

9. Accept insults and injuries.

10. Accept contempt, being forgotten and disregarded.

11. Be courteous and delicate even when provoked by someone.

12. Do not seek to be admired and loved.

13. Do not protect yourself behind your own dignity.

14. Give in, in discussions, even when you are right.

15. Choose always the more difficult task.

Too Funny

Saw this post on Facebook and it was spot on for what I think now as I’m getting older.

Make it a great day.
