Good Morning Readers,

Every day, my husband and I make it a point to never leave the house or go to bed angry.  Life is so precious and we all know how bad things could get within a matter of seconds.

Today I wanted to take a minute to give a tribut to all of those that lost their lives on 9/11/01.  Eleven years after, it is still an event that many of us just can’t forget.  Till this day, that is the major event that had happened in my life, I’ll tell my grandchildren about.

The day of 9/11 I was seventeen years old and a sophomore year in college enrolled in pre-med program.  Eleven years later, a lot of things changed.   I’m far away from being a doctor, I’m married, I have a beautiful son, and adorable little yorkie, a home, and so many more things I didn’t at that age.  But one thing stayed constant.  The emotions that overwhelmed when that event happened still stay true to this day:  Confused, pain, fear, pride for all of those men and women that didn’t think twice to help others….I repeat, I was overwhelmed beyond reason.  Anyone that knows me can attest to the fact that I’m a tough cookie, I stand my own ground, I don’t cry-I rarely ever cry.  But that day, I did.  I called every one of my friends/family to tell them just how much I loved them and how important they are to me in my life.

Many of us are lucky to not to be directly impacted by the events and after effects of that day.  So take some time to pray for those souls that had been lost that day and continue to loose to this second, take some time to tell those you are still lucky to have in your life that you love them, TAKE SOME TIME.  Put a hold onto your busy lives today and give yourselves and those that mean something to you sometime.

Give a quick Phone Call.

Send a quick Text.

Write a three letter email.

What ever means you choose, just take that moment to appreciate what you have.  Because all it takes is one second to lose everything you have and one second to turn your life upside down.   There is no time like the present.

Live in it, Love with everything you have and Laugh till your insides hurt and you cry tears of joy.
