An Emotional Day....

When I woke up this morning, I heard the words that I never want to hear. I turned on the news and they were reporting that a CHP officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. I started crying immediately. I was so thankful that G was home getting a cup of coffee. While I knew it wasn't G, it still breaks my heart every time something like this happens. I always have known from the day G and I met, that this is a risk he takes everyday. In general, I try not to let it consume my head or my heart. It just seems that in todays world, there are so many people who will kill for anything. There are so many people who do not value a persons life. They don't value the wives, children and other family members that the person they kill is important to. I think what makes it even worse when it's a Law Enforcement Officer, is that you know in any circumstance that they would do whatever they could to protect that same person from any type of harm. They are out there every single day doing a job that requires them to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect their communities. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Officer Earl Scott. I thank him and his family for being there to protect and serve.

On a much lighter note. I have a new addition!! Today, I picked up my Valentines gift! Meet my new friend.... I am so excited about this new friend! I can't wait to start uploading songs to it and listening to my hearts content!


And to finish off this post....YAY!! Jerry Rice & Anna Trebunskaya are in the finals!!
