There are so many thoughts and feelings this day brings. If I concentrate for more than a moment I can re-live the those awful hours when I was unsure if the people I love most in the world were in harms way. I can also recall the overwhelming flood of relief when I finally heard the voice I desired the most to hear on the other end of the phone line. I've written about it many times before. Last night there was a moment of silence among friends and another more private one this morning. Today I will do my best avoid the television and radio, because the images from five years ago are still too painful.
The lesson I learned ... this day reminds me how very important it is to tell those in your life what they mean to you.
I am truly very blessed with the most amazing family and friends. They are what keeps my heart beating. I don't see, or even speak with, many of them as much as I'd like to, but I hope they know they are always in my heart.
