What Were You Doing?
Leonard was watching GMA and I was washing my face when he said "A plane hit a building in New York". Then as we watched the horrible events unfold, like everyone else, were worried, wondering what was going on, what does this mean for our country. I hope we prayed, I can't remember.
We had our store then, very few customers, most of them were just like me - almost zombies, in shock. I remember talking to my own mother several times that day. On and off through the day my girls called me or I called them, we tried to be connected, to hold hands across the miles. I love that we stayed together that day and tried to be there for each other.
The world has changed so much in ten years, our lives have changed. They would have changed anyway but it makes me wonder what it would be like to be back today - ten years ago before all of this happened. What about you?
