Monday, May 2

justice has been done.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Menu Monday for my pride-filled post ... 

Today {and everyday} I am honored to be an American. 

After nearly 10 years, Osama bin Laden has been located and killed. 

Every day I am thankful for our troops ... I have had many friends who served and continue to serve in the military ... Most who enlisted after 9/11 .... Friends who signed up to defend our country against those who declared war on innocent Americans. 

I was teary-eyed watching the President's speech ... 

And even more so as I looked at the people celebrating in NYC and DC ... 


These are people who lost loved ones, coworkers, friends ... 


And now they can feel like those people did not die in vain. 


So today, even more than most days, my heart is FULL of pride to be a part of the united front that is the United States of America.

I'm so relieved by this news! I hope it's the start of good things to come ... a end of the war and a better economy! I was tempted to take off of work and head into NYC. It makes me happy to see everyone celebrating. I know so many people who lost loved ones on 9/11. Great post! XOXO
