Thankful Thursday: Remembering 9/11/2001

Today is the national day of mourning. I hope we all pause and remember those who senselessly lost there lives 7 years ago today. I can still remember exactly where I was when I found out that the twin towers had been hit. I remember thinking that the beginning of WWIII was eminent.

I am thankful for our military men and women who sacrifice their lives to keep my country safe. Thank you for giving up your time with your families, for watching your children grow up by pictues while you are serving our country.

I am thankful to be an American.

I am thankful that nothing of this magnitude has happened following 9/11 on United States soil.

I am thankful for the outpouring of love we felt from other countries when this tragedy occurred.

I am thankful for everyone who stops and remembers those left behind seven years ago today.

Lest we Never Forget....

I am thankful that today is my husband's 32 bday. I don't deserve your love for me, but I am thankful for it each and every day of my life.

We find out the sex of the baby on Monday! It's going to be a long weekend!

Just got a chance to read this...what a wonderful post.

I was in Destin on vacation on
9-11-01. I remember we just sat inside, not able to take our eyes off the tv. We couldn't bring ourselves to have fun that day because of what was happening. Still seems surreal, when I watch the footage.

You're right...we are so blessed to live in this country and to have so many brave men and women fighting for our freedom.

You're always in my thoughts and prayers, girl. I'm on the edge of my seat...can't wait to hear the sex of the baby!!
