Today is a day of remembrance for this nation. It's a day of story telling, moments of silence, dedication and of rebuilding. Like many of you, I remember 9/11/01 as clear as a bell and knew many whose lives were affected, and forever changed by the events that day. I wish peace and grace for those people and this nation today.
Today is also a day of celebration in my house. It is the day (MANY years before 2001) that my darling husband was born! I didn't know Coach on 9/11, but it is, indirectly, due to those events that we met and for that I am grateful. We both lost our jobs in layoffs resulting from our respective industries losing business after 9/11 and wound up working and volunteering at a local yoga studio. I remember the exact day in 2002 that we met and I actually still get the same feeling in my stomach sometimes when he walks in a room as I did that day.
In celebration and to add a lift to your day, I say we do a give-away!!
