9/11 Self Reflection

9/11 Self Reflection

15366889912937561277221385617980Hi! School is back in action and my business is back up and running! I have to say by the end of last week….my body was sore from head to toe.  No joke! I had an xray not to long ago and my foot was healed but my ankle needed a little more time.  So…..fingers crossed! This Thursday,  I go for another xray and hopefully I will be put in a lighter ankle brace.  Its been a long haul in the healing process.  I want to be healed and have full movement in my ankle.   It is so stiff out of the aircast and trying to move it around.

On a lighter note…..yesterday afternoon my niece came over and babysat my three boys! My husband and I were able to go and see The Nun in the movie theater.  So much fun! We went to a 430pm movie and were back home having supper by 6:30pm.  I have to say….it was great! It’s so nice to go out and break up the monogamy.  We have to do that more often.

Last night I had to figure out a lesson plan for my kids and had to incorporate 9/11 day of remembrance.  We will be making flags this afternoon! I had to talk a little bit about what had happened that day with my older kids.  We all had a sad moment! It brought back such vivid memories for me.  I lived in Virginia at that time and the chaos that went on there with the attack on the Pentagon and the fighter jets that flew over us.  I didnt know if we were being attacked or attacking.  Very scary! The rest of my family lived on long island and I had no idea what was going on there….since the phone lines were busy and no calls would go through!  Luckily for my family everyone was fine but for those who lost their life….so tough for the ones they left behind.  It’s a sad day.

I’m so thankful for my family and for the country we live in! I appreciate the things I have and look forward to great things that were sacrificed for me.  I have so many freedoms as a woman, wife, mom and business woman.  Life couldnt be better! We need to appreciate the big things and the small stuff!

 

Until next time,

Jen
