We Remember/ Box of Chocolates

We shall never forget
We shall keep this day,
We shall keep the events and the tears
In our minds, our memory and our hearts
and take them with us as we carry on.

Eight years ago, we suffered a great loss. Before that, since then and in years to come we have and will continue to suffer from the misguided decisions and convictions of others. We suffer them abroad and at home, and there often is nothing to do in light of these other than to lick our wounds, learn what we can and move on. These are not circumstances we can have averted, prevented or foreseen. Sometimes, bad things just happen — at the cost of many lives, many separated families and much money, time and effort. It makes hope a little darker and change a little less expedient.


I know its been way to long since we posted. I don't know how time just flew by so quickly. We have been knitting away and buying yarn as usual. I guess I was kinda looking for a reason to post and thanks to Ria we now have one. It was such a good surprise to receive this cool award. Thank you so much♥♥

“In my best southern accent, I would like to say that I have been thinking about a new award and what I would like it to say. People are like Forrest Gump said ” Life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you’re gonna get.

You can see this box of chocolates is filled with different and unique candies and just like the chocolates we are all different and unique people. We are the same in that we all have common ingredients that make us more a like than not. Except for the frosting, which represents our personalities, we are indeed very similar on the inside.”

And of course there are rules:
1. That you must pass this award to others.

2. Link back to me when you have passed them forward.

3. Write a nice post about this award.

4. You must read this award with a southern accent. I call it southern day where we all have to speak with a southern accent. I know that will be hard for some of you, but for the rest of us, we will be fine. So now, ya’ll just enjoy this little ol’ award and have fun with it.

5. And of course let your folks know that they have a nice award waiting for them.

So who gets the box of Chocolates next????
