I wasn’t going to write a post today. What could I say that hasn’t already been said by much more eloquent writers than me?
No, we’ll never forget. Where we were, who we were with, what we were doing as the reports came in and we watched in horror.
September 11, 2001 is a date forever etched in our memories. And while I reflect on what we were doing ten years ago today, it hit me – my grandson wasn’t even born in 2001!
Today we are celebrating his 4th birthday, albeit 10 days late. As I sit and watch his joy and enthusiasm for . . . for Life, I realize that while I’ll never forget that tragic day, I also must find appreciation.
Appreciation for those around me.
Appreciation for the blessings I receive, each and every day.
Appreciation for our great country.
I hope you’ll join me and take some time today to appreciate the blessings in your life. And remember.
