As I sit to type this, September 11, 2012 is drawing to a close. I am so thankful for the country that I live in. I am thankful for those men and women who risk their lives to strive to keep us safe and free. I am thankful for their families who sacrifice their loved one as they serve around the world. I am also thankful for the local public servants who are the first responders in my community.
As I was blog hopping this morning, I ran across Sandy Allnock's post on the May Arts blog. She made a beautiful card and did a video tutorial. In the video, she discussed how many people try to do a service for their local first responders. I thought that was a fabulous idea and I wanted to join in on that challenge.
It is easy for me to appreciate my local first responders because I know many of them personally. I work with them often as they come into the ER. They are a huge blessing to me. I decided to make this card to take over to the ambulance shed today. Add a plate of brownies and we were good to go.

I plan to enter this into the current May Arts Challenge. Their website appears to be down, so that will have to wait a bit. I have a great post for 3 Girl Jam scheduled for midnight (CST) on Sept.13. I also will have the alternate card ready to post on Sept 14. Until then...
Take time to enjoy the little things.
