So we have been a little quiet here at the Holidaychicks.com of late. We have been a bit sidetracked by the world. I was a little under the weather and B is having computer difficulties. The fires out west have me very worried. I have friends in California, Oregon and Washington. They are all safe but the fires are burning around them. Scary stuff.
Also September 11th or Patriot Day was this week. My husband and I lived 6 miles from NYC when the towers fell. We both had front row seats that day. Him, from the windows of his job in Hackensack, N.J., and me standing on the sidewalk on Midland Ave in Kearney, NJ. The fire departments from the entire area flew by heading to the Holland Tunnel. I often wonder about those people. I can still hear the sirens.
It is a day I will never forget. No one should ever forget. There was smoke in the air and a horrible smell for weeks after. Our town, North Arlington became a memorial along Schuyler Ave. There is a clear view of lower Manhattan from there. Its always a time To think about how fragile life is and count my blessings. Then add Covid-19 to the mix and everything else happening, it is quite a roller coaster.
There have been a few holidays this week that we would normally be writing about, but this will be a quiet week. But do remember to celebrate your grandparents and your loved ones every day. Family, friends everyone. They are what it is all about. Love is all we have and all we need. Remember life is fragile-count your blessings.
