Do you remember where you were eight years ago today, or what you were doing? I do. I was asleep in my apartment on Auburn Drive, in Auburn, Alabama. My mom called around 10:00 and woke me up screaming something about terrorist attacks and was I okay. I jumped up and ran to the television and news was everywhere-I literally could not believe what I was seeing. My boyfriend at the time was there and we just stood there crying and trying to make sense of everything, then quickly trying to call everyone we knew to make sure they were okay. It was a disgusting day-I still have the newspaper published from that day, showing what looked like a modern day Pearl Harbor-it was almost comical looking, like something from a movie set.

Today is a rainy, gray day in Atlanta. It seems fitting for the mood of all those still mourning their lost loved ones in the attacks.

I hope that today you remember the tragedy, but most of all, remember all you have that is GOOD in your life-and thank God for it.

I am so thankful for my freedom, my husband, my sweet angel Emma, my precious family, great friends, a home, and so many other things! I pray that all those who are hurting are soothed.

Remember what today is about, and be thankful for all you have.
