7 years ago...

"Where were you when the world stopped turning
that September morn?" -Alan Jackson


I was holding baby Lincoln in my arms when my phone rang.
It was my mom.
She asked me if I was watching the news.
She told me to turn on the TV...fast.
I stood in horror watching over and over the tower being attacked.
I was shocked. We all were.

I was in disbelief. I was scared. I was wondering:

What next, are we next?


We were living in our house in Ogden.
I remember so clearly.

I remember the next day
driving down mountain road and there were flags out
everywhere.
I immediately started crying

The rally had begun.


One year later-
I called my mom...
and then my dad...
and my sisters...
and then my brother.

I told them all I loved them.
They asked if I was dying :)

No more putting off tomorrow what I can do today.


Seven years later-

No more putting off tomorrow what I can do today.

I think everyone remembers what they were doing and where they were 7 years ago today. That is something that made history and we must never forget. I am so glad that it hasn't happened since but we must always be prepared/ That is such good advice to not put off untill tomorrow what we can do today. We may never get another chance. Love to all of you.
