LONG SAD WEEK

Hi everyone, yes I am still here, still working and still dreaming. :) It has been a week of sadness though, we lost some brothers at arms in the B52 crash at Guam. Five of them, the regular crew members, were from Barkdale AFB where I work. One of them, the Flight Commander, Major Chris Cooper was the fiance of one of Cheryl's good friends that she works with at Barksdale Federal Credit Union. She attended the memorial service with her yesterday. It was a beautiful, but sorrowful ceremony with many remembrances of the crew members and thier lives. Please pray for the family and friends of the these men who served to defend our freedoms.

Today is Saturday and in spite of our grown children all having different plans for us today, we are going to take a daytrip. We feel like we are in a "depression" with all that has been happening this past week and need to get away. I am taking the camera and hope to have something interesting to post by Monday! :)

Until then remember.... life can be short and the time we have is a gift from God.. Enjoy your gift :)
