It was years ago but the image still strong;
as the towers fell, our innocence was gone.
Have we forgotten what happened that day;
As the sirens wailed, and lives crumbled away?
Have we lost the will and resolve to fight;
to punish the wrong and defend the right?
Where were you when you heard the news
that our beloved country was attacked and bruised?
Do we not remember the anguish and pain;
the feeling that the world had gone insane?
How much longer can we remain out of sight
as those all around chant "Let's quit; not fight"?
Will you do the right thing and stand with me?
Or will you hide your face and blame the country?
The moment has come and the time is now.
Will we stand up and fight or quit and bow?
As I sit here and gaze at our banner half mast,
a phrase comes to mind: Never Forget The Past.
God bless all lost on September 11, 2001
and those lost in the response to defend
Liberty around the world.

So...here's a little summary of what's been going on this past year.
band b/c they were beyond amazing. The are called DMP from Memphis, TN. They even had my grandmother dancing... This is one of my favorite pics of my dad and me walking down the aisle.
This was the view from our room!
During Fall of '07, we spent the majority of our time at Ole Miss football games....gotta LOVE my husband for agreeing to buy season tickets. He's an LSU fan, but I believe he enjoys watching the games regardless. We actually are getting to go to an LSU game this year, so I'm glad about that!
Christmas was spent in Water Valley with my family and then in San Antonio with Rob's family through New Years. We never had a dull moment. While in San Antonio, we went to the zoo, a Spurs Game, and to Fredricksburg, TX.....a small German town about an hour from SA (with great shopping). We are certainly blessed that our jobs allow us to have enough time off during the holidays to spend with both sets of parents.
This past June, Rob's parents and brothers were able to join us for a vacation at DisneyWorld. We felt like kids again! Rob had us up every morning and at the parks before they even opened. It was a lot of fun and we ate entirely too much food!! We stayed at the Port Orleans Resort on Disney Property. Despite being the middle of June, it wasn't too hot. It rained on and off and pretty much stayed overcast throughout the week. We were so blessed that Rob's family could join us. We hate that we can't see them as much as we would like...but we sure love our visits to San Antonio.
For our 1st anniversary, we went to Gatlinburg. Again..not a dull moment! There was so much to do. I told Rob that during our next trip, we would have to plan a day where we do nothing but lay by the pool. We were exhausted. One day we hiked in the Smoky Mountains and saw a bear and her three cubs. It's amazing how fast the year has gone. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband. Our first year of marriage was amazing. I look forward to the many many years that we will continue to share together. I love you Rob!!
So, as you can tell..our year has been full of excitement. It was busy, but we enjoyed every bit of it.
