Grateful.

This Mama Bird has been sick trying to heal three little baby birds as well. This week has taught me to me grateful for my health and my family. To really assess what is important to me. One of the major reasons for this was September 11th falling this week and it coming and going almost unnoticed by the media. It's something that even in my bleary eyed state I noticed and it makes me wonder... why? It's not a question that I can answer. I can only say that I remembered and I hope you did too. I was in New York City only a few weeks before the Twin Towers fell. I remember exactly where I was, what I was wearing, and how I felt when I heard about the first tower and all of the confusion. It's a day that I will always remember and it is a day that teaches me to be grateful for the people in my life. The heroes that died that day, the heroes that survived, and all of the families will always be in my prayers and I will always be indebted to them for teaching me the valuable life lesson of being grateful and humble.

I too have been thinking of that fateful day. There is a strangeness in the air, and it's not just the weather. I believe those of faith will be diligent to keep a watchful eye and be prepared, to take nothing for granted. There is nothing like losing your health to make you humble. I thank God everyday I have a good day. Blessings to you and yours! [IMG]http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj17/jtskidmore/Lilac%20Cottage/TheLilacCottage_button.png[/IMG]
