This morning I kissed my husband goodbye for his 7AM shift at the Fire Station. Shortly after I looked at the clock and saw what day it was.
My mind flooded with memories.
I was in 8th grade.
I came out of my room after getting ready for school and my dad had the news on. It was approx 7:15 AM and I saw the world trade centers on TV.
The rest of the day the school TVs were on as we all just sat and watched. Helpless. Unsure. Scared. United.
Today I have a whole new perspective of 9/11. I never thought I'd be the wife of a first responder.
But it has definitely changed my perspective and appreciation for what happened on 9/11...
All day today I thought of sending Matt to work on 9/11...living in New York, not being able to hear from him and know if he was okay, losing him....my heart was with all of the first responder families today as these thoughts swirled in my mind.
Even more so today than ever before, I'm filled with immense gratitude for our free nation, those who sacrifice daily on a local and national level to protect all citizens, and for the families of all those who serve and protect....even more so today than ever before I'll never forget 9/11💙❤️💙❤️💙❤️
