A GLAM Girl's Guide To Life

Today is September 11, 2012

  Today is September 11th, the anniversary of the horrific attack that took place in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania just 11 years ago.  It’s hard to write a blog on a day like today. It hard to stay upbeat when the memories are still so real and the wounds still sting. But that is why we remember. Because nothing can ever undo the events of that day, and it’s important for us as Americans, especially YOUNG Americans, to honor those people who lost their lives that day.

Days like this one bring out my patriotic side, and I can’t help but be very proud to be an American.  I’m proud to be from a country where I can openly praise my God for the work He’s done through such a tragic event. So many lives were touched when those planes crashed and those buildings crumbled, and God’s arms were there to catch the falling, His peace was there to comfort the hurting, and His love was BIG enough to cover 50 states. People embraced our country and our God, and even though many were struggling, there was a sense of peace as everyone tried to heal. For the first time in my lifetime, people were openly praying for our leaders, our military, and our neighbors. They were agreeing and believing that God had a plan, and that our country would be stay strong.Photo by REUTERS / Craig Ruttle


Here we are, 11 years later, and we are still strong. We are still free, and we are still proud. It’s a privilege to spend today honoring those who lost their lives on 9-11-01. If you haven’t done so yet, please take a few minutes to remember and honor the victims and their families. Say a prayer for our country, our president, our military, and fellow citizens, and ask God to continue to bless this country that we are so fortunate to live in.

No Surprises, Please?
This may sound absurd to some of you, but I REALLY, REALLY don’t like surprises… well, at least surprises that I know are coming. There isn’t much out there that frustrates me more than knowing something is coming my way and then having NO ...

Things I Wish Someone, ANYONE, Had told me.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to re-connect with a group of friends from home. Some I had kept in contact with, others I hadn’t laid eyes on in almost 10 years. Moments like those are rare. I’m so glad we took the time to hangout ...

Rain, Rain, Go Away!
Blah… RAIN, rain GO AWAY! You make me sad and sleepy and very unproductive. Rainy days have a way of making me feel down. I figure it’s the lack of light and the lack of motivation to get up and go and do. It doesn’t really matter either ...
