Do you remember where you were on that moment?

Can you count the ways your life has changed since then?

Today I am thankful for

  1. a moment in time that while tragic, helped me find the greatest joy in my life.
  2. the people who know me and love me despite what they know.
  3. second chances, and third chances, and sometimes even a fourth … or more.

For what are you thankful?

  1. My Monday has lasted far longer than the usual but I am still thankful:

    1) That on that day eight years ago I knew quickly that all those I loved were safe and I was able to comfort my friends who were not so lucky.
    2) That I started something new at work that actually made me smile all day.
    3) For quality breaks, and sharp eyes, which kept me from taking the life of the pregnant cat who walked in front of my car tonight; seeing her make it safely off the road.

  2. After an extremely long (yet to end) day/week/month/year…
    I am thankful for…
    1) this blog for reminding me weekly that i have things to be thankful for!
    2) the fact that my kids do NOT have the H1N1 virus
    3) the fabulous country that pays my Airman’s wages even when he has to take time off because of deaths in the family or sick kids or whatever, without the Air Force I don’t know where we’d be

  4. 1) Wonderful loved ones, who are there for me always, watching out, helping out, accomodating, even when I don’t ask. My goals get all the more easier to achieve because of love & support like this.
    2) Memories – good memories from the past of innocence, and wonder, and togetherness & beautiful friendships.
    3) Finding myself in a happy place, no matter how crazy things get

  6. Thankful for someone watching out for me when I had an accident today, noone was hurt. My car and me both are intact.

    Thankful for a wonderful thing someone did for me and my team at work (on personal expense). Surprising, refreshing and very heartwarming!

    Thankful for an amazing frd who is always there whenever I need.

  7. Vividly, like a series of strobes in my memory. Sighs and sounds and, eventually scents and tastes etched deep..
    Eight years later, I am thankful:

    1) That the world has changed less than it might have. New York has not lost it self in fear, but picked up and carried on.

    2) That we haven’t added to the list of days we have to mark off in that horribly sad way.

    3) I am stopping and pausing with people from across the world to think and thank.
