I remember vividly that morning. My Hayley was born in May, and we were still having some sleepless nights. I remember that morning she was sleeping in, so I tried as well.
Then the phone rang... it was my Mom and she said "Are you watching? Have you heard? I said "no, I've just woken up" She told me to turn on the news, and we watched in horror. At the time I was living in NC, 9 hours from "home". But wishing I was with my family and friends that day. As my Mom and I sat on the phone, I could not fathom that what I was seeing was real. It was like a horrible, horrible dream that would not end. Tears rolled down my face at the sheer tragedy of it all. Another example of why we should take nothing for granted. To hold our loved ones close to us. To mend harsh words we may have spoken. To forgive and to really live! For we do not know what our futures hold.
Please take time today to say a prayer, for our country, our loved ones, and all of the people who lost loved ones that day and are still missing them. The wives, husbands, daughters, sons, boyfriends, girlfriends, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends. For our military who fights to keep us safe. For the families who are missing them as well.
We will never forget....
Many Blessings to you all....
