"This is a day we'll never forget."
Thursday, September 11, 2008

That's what my mom wrote on the card with a bouquet of flowers she sent me on September 11, 2001.

She sent me flowers that day because we called her bright and early that morning to tell her she was going to be a Grandma.

Not 30 minutes after we hung up the phone, the attack on the World Trade Centers began.

Early on September 11th, Jonathan and I were crying tears of happiness over a positive pregnancy test.

Not 30 minutes later we were crying tears of fear and horror as our country was being attacked.

I first called my mom, my voice shaking with excitement and joy. I called her back not 30 minutes later my voice shaking with sadness and grief.

I'm quite sure my emotions will never again change so dramatically in such a short amount of time.

I was changed forever. My country was changed forever. Indeed a day we'll never forget.




A few years ago, Jonathan posted his feelings HERE.

We must have kids about the same age because I got a tooth ache which was brought on by my new pregnancy. NO one knew why I would not take some drugs and get over it. It hurt so bad I was in bed for 4 days from the 11-15 and I was so depressed watching this happen.
