What I Love About Me-Blog Hop

"The wise know the value of friendship, and that it is wisdom to be a friend to oneself too." -A.C. Grayling

Welcome to Week 14 of "What I Love About Me!" hosted by Twins Plus One, Three Times the Fun and Twingle Mommy!

Here's how it works -
Write a post about what you love about yourself this week and then add it to the linky list below. This is intended to be a time and place for each of us to stop criticizing ourselves for a few minutes and actually remind ourselves of the characteristics we are proud to own. So go ahead, look in the mirror, and see yourself through your loved one's eyes. Notice the beauty first. Here's your place to shine!

A few simple guidelines -
•Please follow the two hostesses. If you are a new follower, please comment so we can follow you too! :)
•We'd love it if you posted the button and the linky list, but it is not mandatory. The button code is on my left sidebar.
•Feel free to link to your homepage or your specific "What I Love About Me!" post. We want this to be a fun, relaxing hop so we'll accept all links as long as they are family-friendly. Thanks!
•The linky will be open all week so feel free to link-up on your own time!

I love being an American. On the ten year anniversary of 9/11 I sit and think about what a wonderful country I live in. Here are just a few examples.
  • I love that I live in a country where men and women stand up to evil and defend strangers. I am so proud of our military, and I am very thankful of the sacrifices that they and their families make.
  • I love that I live in a country where we can disagree with our leaders and each other. I can't imagine living somewhere where I was afraid for my safety to speak my mind.
  • I love that I live in a country where individuals open their hearts and wallets to help those in need.
  • I love that I live in a country where we can pay tribute to all the lives that were lost on 9/11. And for one day we can put all our differences aside and stand united.

  1. I was almost in tears reading your post! I agree with you 100%. I am so grateful to be living where I am and to have the freedom that we have. I am ESPECIALLY grateful to all of those who risk their lives defending it. True definition of a hero!

    I wanted to stop by and say hello. I hadn't been around blogville in a while because I had a lot of personal issues going on. I still love reading your blog more than ever though!!! :-)

  2. I can't stop getting teary eyed every time I watched about 9/11.
    So sad. My prayers for the victims and their families!
