Prayers for fallen and injured firefighters

Today on the 100th anniversary of the Chicago stockyard that killed 21 firefighters we lost 2 in a building collapse.

It's never easy when you hear someone passes, it's especially hard when it's someone risking their lives to save others. These 2 men died searching for squatters that may or may not have been in the building.

Lt. Edward Stringer was a relief lieutenant whos job was to fill in for those on furlough, sick leave, vacation, etc.

Corey Ankum is a former police officer who leaves behind a wife and one year old baby who was only on the department for two years.

Along with the men who passed there were several injures, a few who still remain hospitalized at this time. Please say a prayer for the fallen and their families. Please also pray for the members of the CFD as they mourn the loss of two of their own.

God speed gentlemen.

So thanks to a soon to be ex my computer is on its last legs and I'm just babying it until I can get a new one. In the mean time I have figured out how to post on my phone.

Work is still work, still loving it and still having fun. Quilty stuff has been on the back burner for a few reasons. There is the divorce, a nasty mother, my wonderful kids, and a new person of the male kind in my life.

We've known each other a few months so and just taking it slowly as we both just ended serious relationships at the start of summer. We get along great, have alot of the same views (well we will ignore the fact he's a cubs fan), and he gets me and understands my job. I'm just enjoying the company of a good friend and someone who listens to me. Oh, and he's not a drinker which is awesome.

Life is good right now. Certain things could be better but I'm content with things right now so I can focus on enjoying the holidays.
