9/11


My Hero

Well, I wasn't sure if I would journal anything today. I know all of you have spent time today reflecting on the events of Sept. 11, 2001. I can vividly remember hearing the news on the radio on my way to work and then getting to work and everyone gathered around the tv in the lobby watching the events unfold. I remember watching the second plane hit the trade center, and the fear of wondering where the next plane would crash. I remember calling Joey and wondering if we should go get Brea from her school. I remember the biggest feeling of just wanting to be at home with my family. I was pregnant with Colt at that time and was wondering what kind of world I was bringing this child into.

Looking back I can honestly say that 2001 was a year that changed the course of my life forever, good and bad. Colt was born on October 15, 2001 and what a special child he is. A hero sent to me and Joey to bless us in ways that only he could have.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Do you read the Disboards at all?

I'm sorry that you lost Colt, especially at such a young age. I am humbled by your strength.
