One Heck of a Day...

Hooray! I passed my test! I am so happy, relieved, elated, etc. I hope to never have to take another test EVER AGAIN! It wasn't as terrible as I was assuming. But then, studying for a month in advance is great preparation. Now I will get bumped up a level at work (definition: $$$) & can use these CTR credentials forever in the future if I ever need to find a different job. Yay! And for my reward? Being as lazy as I want today.

The Irish decided to break their 2 game losing streak today by beating Michigan State 31-13. It was a pretty awesome game. There were a few early turnovers & mistakes. But ND managed to hang on to the lead & build on their progress. (Picture of Cierre Wood for a touchdown.) Blanton was definitely the player of the game. We finally have a secondary defensive player worth mentioning. He kicked butt! Good day for Notre Dame.

Happy dances all around!

10th Anniversary of 9/11

I was pretty emotional today. We ended our sacrament by singing "America the Beautiful." Before the NFL game, there was a 9/11 tribute. I loved when they rolled out the huge American flag and had all the players, coaches, & servicemen hold the flag together. I am still amazed when I think of all that occurred 10 years ago & how our countrymen came together. Churches were full of people looking for comfort, guidance, & God.

I am so grateful to be an American. We live in the greatest country in the world & have so much to be thankful for. I cannot imagine a life without the freedoms we enjoy. I'm forever grateful for all the men & women who protect our freedoms on the frontline. I know God chose this land for us & watches over us always.

Chorus: "America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!"
