Saturday:) Special Friends and Firefighters~ “Never Forget.”

11 Sep

The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here.” ~Abraham Lincoln

• “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in 2002

Abraham Lincoln was talking about the Civil War, but his quote rings true about 9/11. It doesn’t matter what we say, it’s how we remember and never forget. Do you remember how the entire country rallied and supported one another? What happened to that country? I pray that we can get that feeling back someday.

If you know me, you know that I like to bake and share with my local fire stations, not just on 9/11, but throughout the year, especially holidays. It’s my way of saying thank you all year round, not just one particular day. So, I started doing my massive baking of the famous “bad ass brownies.”

Gettin’ started. These brownie bites are from my famous recipe of two boxes of brownie mix, follow directions, 4 or 5 cups of mini marshmallows, mix, put in parchment lined pan, and sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake.
Then, topped with a dollop of my also famous no bake peanut butter cheesecake then topped with a NutterButter cookie.
I just love sharing my old brownie mix faces. 🤦‍♀️ “ I see faces in the brownie mix.”
I have found from experience that a lot of the fire stations are out on calls or at ceremonies on 9/11, so I try and go over on 9/10. (I found this cute fire truck that makes a siren noise.)
Station 9. I picked up the house phone, but no one answered, so I drove around to the back and found Firefighter Hallerman working back by one of the trucks.
Over at Station 5, this sweet and beautiful firefighter answered the door. We really have awesome first responders here in McKinney.

It was a great day. I’m feeling blessed to live in such a wonderful community. “Never Forget.”

Also, while I was in my “Sharing is Caring” mood, I saw Miss Stephanie delivering the mail when I was going for my walk. She had already passed my house, so I went inside, grabbed a container with a few brownies and scooted through the park, crossed the street, and chased her down on the next block.

Thank you Miss Stephanie. (She ate one right away and said it was yummy.”
