I Am Humbled
Here it is 1:27am and I am feeling very...shall we say "blah". Last night I watched the President confirm the death of Osama Bin Laden, which I am happy about. But now I am spent. Why? Because I spend the majority of the evening alone. There is no adult conversation in my house. We are entering week 4 of my husband's crazy evening shift work schedule. No days off. Not one. Therefore, I have no one to reflect with. So I am turning to my blog.
As I watched Obama's speech, I found myself lost in in the same emotion that struck me the day I witnessed the Twin Towers collapsing on T.V. I was getting ready for work, and was brought to my knees watching CNN, as was the rest of the world. The rest of the day was a blur.
Last night I silently cried for all of the people lost on 09/11 and on every other day since the beginning of this war. I am not an American, but I felt the pain just the same. I hope that there will be a positive outcome after all of this, and I hope the troops can all come home to their families. I can not imagine being without my loved ones, so here is to all of the men and women who sacrifice so much:
Someone like me is always thinking about you, and I am very thankful for what you do. God Bless You All!
