Important Update: Prayers and Support for Pilger, NE

Update: When donating money to the Pilger area, please make donations at banks in Cuming County. They all accepting donations! Local fire and rescue chapters will also need support.

The tornado tragedy in Pilger, NE hits home with me.  I am originally from a town near the area.  I spoke with my Dad last night, and he mentioned that all the surrounding fire and rescue teams having been helping clear roads, care for the injured and search for survivors.  The town was blocked off but residents are now being allowed back to their homes.

The people in the area are strong and resilient.  They are people who lead their own lives; however, they can really use your prayers and support in this challenging time.

Thanks in Advance for Supporting a Great Nebraska Community!

Thank You Veterans: Yesterday, Today and Always

Yesterday was Veterans Day-the perfect day to remember all the men, women and families who have sacrificed (and still continue to sacrifice) to make the United States such a great nation.

When I got home last night, my husband told me that Nebraska’s very own Governor Heineman invited Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hagemeister to be one of the individuals to unveil a new Medal of Honor Plaque during a special ceremony in the Nebraska’s Capitol Building.  An announcement of this momentous occasion is available online by going to: http://www.governor.nebraska.gov/news/2013/11/08_honor_plaque.html

My husband is related to Lieutenant Colonel Hagemeister, a Medal of Honor recipient, which made this an extra cool event for our family!

I just wanted to extend another thank you to our military heroes.  They are the reason I can get up and write whatever I want to discuss on this blog. They are the reason I can choose to do whatever I want to do in this lifetime. They are the reason my family lives in a free country.   We can all “Be You and Do Something Cool” because we are free.

Much gratitude from the bottom of my heart-yesterday, today and always…THANK YOU ALL!!
