Where were you when you heard about the attacks?
I was on my way out the door to give birth to this little angel.
As we were leaving, my sister (who was staying with my two kids) had the TV on. I still remember walking through the kitchen and seeing Matt Lauer on the TV reporting that a plane had crashed into one of the World Trade Centers. At that time we couldn’t figure out such a horrible accident happened. We hopped in the car and turned on the radio in disbelief. As the events unfolded, we were in total shock about what we were hearing.
I know that you come to this blog to find the “deals”, but this day is still a tender one in my heart, as she was a blessing to receive on such a devastating day.
The climate of our country is so different now than what it was in the months that followed 9/11. I loved the feeling of Patriotism and the love of God and Country that existed in the United States. I miss seeing the American Flag out on nearly every home like we saw for months and months after the attacks. I miss that feeling of unity as a country, and how we turned to our Father in Heaven for understanding, peace, and comfort.
I am so grateful that I have the knowledge of His eternal plan. I’m so grateful for the blessing of Megan on that day. I fear that our country as a whole, is forgetting God and all that he has given and continues to give us…
I love this country and *I will never forget*.
Enjoy this beautiful video tribute, and go hang your flag and thank your servicemen.
ps – I would love for you to share your story about where you were.
