Be strong and let your hope take courage, all YOU who Hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24
I can not wrap my head around the fact that it is the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. I have had my head in the sand too much lately trying not to feel the emotion of it again. I can’t help but think of my oldest son and how I was pregnant with him when that horrible event happened. At the time I wondered what kind of world I was bringing my child into. However, we pressed on and now he is here and already in 4th grade and probably teaching us more than we have him. He has a great thirst for knowledge of history and past Presidents. When 9/11 comes up in conversation I always think to myself that he probably does not realize the scope of what happened yet and how our world changed that day. He has only ever known a post-9/11 world.
I am so behind on my blog (as usual and always will be). I have so many sessions I should share but thought I would just take a little moment to reflect on the day and the journey since then.
This is Evan, my first born, AKA The Sheriff. He keeps us straight by keeping tabs on what is fair and more importantly what is not fair. He came into the world as the most beautiful newborn I have ever seen and maybe the bossiest too. He is a sweet boy and what a ride it has been. It sure has gone fast!
Another 9/11 trigger for me is the book Love You Mean It by four 9/11 Widows. Imagine my surprise on vacation two years ago when I thought I was reading a fluffy girlfriend book and realized what it was all about! My head came right out of the sand that day. I started crying in chapter one and finished it in one day with a migraine. It has haunted me ever since and I can’t remember who I gave it to now. Anyway, I just liked their Facebook page if that tells you how curious I am about how they are doing now.
Love you mean it,
