Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right. Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

It's hard to believe that it's been 7 years since the unimaginable tragedy that left our nation in shock and grief. As I watch the memorial ceremonies today to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, I feel that it is equally as important to remember the men and women who continue to protect our freedoms. My dear friends at http://www.foursillysisters.blogspot.com/ understand this all to well, as "Daddy" is being deployed to Iraq this week. Thank you, Scott, for your service to this great country.
This is an authentic picture (checked w/ Snopes), taken in Iraq on 9 September 2003 by the Baker Company, with the 7th Marines, 1st Battalion, to honor the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S.
I taught primary school for 27 years, and loved every minute of it. I am now enjoying retirement on 30+ acres in the north Georgia mountains with my husband and Labrador Retrievers.
When we aren't hanging out in the woods, we enjoy traveling in our RV w/ the dogs. One of our favorite destinations is the Pacific Northwest, especially the Oregon and Washington coasts.
My parents are deceased, I am an only child and have no children; therefore, my husband and dogs are my family.
My blog and blogging friends have taken the place of my classroom and students.
You could say, I've gone from SCHOOL DAYS to DOG DAZE.
