Here are the lessons I learned for Sept 10 and 11. I know Sept 11 is not over but really there was nothing I (a former Soldier, always patriotic woman, and Army brat) was going to learn that was more important than getting my thoughts down about this day nine years ago. I had a lot to say but mostly "NEVER FORGET!" Where were you that day? What do you remember? Do you realize you are part of history? Scrap it!
For yesterday my lesson was on gratefulness. I am so grateful for my little healthy happy family where two plus one is three. In life we tend to get hung up on the everyday stressors (or I do) and I need to remind myself that we are so blessed and lucky. I have seen how others live in the world, all over.I have seen oppression, suppression, poverty beyond your dreams, sexism to the extreme and the worst that mankind has to offer, so I KNOW how lucky we are, just let me assure of you that. We live in a society where we can do/say/be anything that we wish. We can speak our minds and argue our beliefs, practice our religion of choice or not, live how we wish and do what we want. We are so very blessed and lucky. Please remember that always and forever. Hug your loved ones today and everyday. Speak with love and joy not anger and spite!
