Remembering September 11

My American flag is flying just outside my window this morning, as a reminder of this important day and a tribute to those who died. No challenge you or I face each day is too big or too challenging, especially when we take the time to remember what the whole country was going through 8 years ago today. I remember where I you?

Now, after all the documentaries, movies, talk shows and memorials, it is still hard to see the footage of that day and know that it really happened, right here on American ground. I continue to be grateful to God that we live in a free country where I can fly my flag and remember daily the sacrifices of the millions of people who have given their lives to keep us free.

God Bless America, Today and Always.

Hey Jodi :)

I'm so bummed! I spent 2 hours last night writing a heart-felt post, and when I published it and pulled up my blog, all that I had written was gone! SO bummed about that.

Anyway, the gist of it was in line with the comment that you left me about our mortal bodies. And it got me thinking- so many times I've expressed the ills that I've gone through during the last 4 years, without acknowledging the many battles that my body has fought and won.

Thanks for giving me a better perspective- even though I know that's not what you were necessarily intending.

Thanks for thinking of me and praying for me. I don't know about you, but I tend to feel at times like I don't deserve all of it- like their are a lot more people that need/deserve the thoughts. Is it just me? Not that I'm ever going to complain about it though :) Just a thought.

And just so you know, you are and will always be in my thoughts and prayers. You absolutely deserve it.

Much love to you and your family.
Thanks again my friend :)
