On Friday, we lost use of our land-line and use of the internet. Our phone connection was partially restored on Saturday morning, and so was the internet. But it quickly went out again. Carl called Verizon and they have promised to come by Thursday....Carl, knowing my sanity was at risk, called again and they said they would try to fix it sooner.
Feeling a little isolated from the world, (and needing an internet fix) I've come to my office this morning to catch up on e-mails. But until Verizon makes good on that promise to fix everything, I won't be able to visit your blogs. I'll miss reading what you are up too--But I hope you've had a good weekend! Despite the dark cloud hanging over me because of no internet connection, our weather in Virginia has been gorgeous! I've gotten things done outside, and taken the dogs for several long walks.
Finally, as we all know, today is a day of remembrance as we remember the events and those that lost their lives on September 11th. I know we are also keeping in our hearts the loved ones they left behind as well.
There are many, many stories from that day. One that touches my heart is written by a friend of mine who was living in New York City with her husband and two Goldens, Hope and Darwin. I posted this last year, but I find Nan's story very compelling, because it is one of survival and determination. I hope you'll take a minute to read about 'Two Who Survived.'
