Everyone knows what they were doing and where they were when they found out about the attacks. Just like older people know the same when they found out about MLK and JFK being shot. If anything, it's a reminder to be thankful. As far as I know to date, nobody I know or have been associated with was a part of the thousands that lost their lives 6 years ago.
I got a chance to catch up with my aunt on the phone yesterday. She filled me in on whats going on with folks in my fam. Some of it funny, some of it sad, some of it made me just plain mad. All of it in its own way made me thankful. Thankful that I nor my child has had to go through things some of my family has had to. Thankful that I am in my right mind, at least most the time. Thankful for what I have and thankful for my support system. I could go on and on, but I won't. I am just glad to have reminders every now and again that I am doing just fine in the big scheme of things.
Now to find some breakfast so my tummy can be thankful too! :-)
