Sunday morning- New York City.
We’ve had a wonderful week visiting my sister for Thanksgiving. Today we split up and Charlie and his family took the 9:30 boat to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty. Charlie (2+) said she has her sleeves up! The weather was perfect. Mary and I were at the Holiday Fair in Grand Central Station when these photos arrived on my phone, Looked like a guest blog to me! Thanks James.
All of the photos are taken by my SIL James, Charlie’s dad, except for the one with the Park Ranger taken by my daughter Laura, Charlie’s mom.
“The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.” from the National Park Service Webpage

Someone placed a bouquet in the crook of her arm. Today’s post remembers friend and poet Christina Murdock who passed one year ago today, a week short of her thirtieth birthday.
from Let it Be by John Lennon and Paul McCartneyWhen I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be. Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
