11 Years Ago

11 Years Ago, I was in high school.

11 Years Ago, I was still grieving the loss of my daddy.

11 Years Ago, I was about to be crowned home-coming queen.

11 Years Ago, I was learning to live with just Mom and Cassie.

11 Years Ago, I was in Biology when my teacher got a call.

11 Years Ago, I was in Biology when my teacher turned on the T.V.

11 Years Ago, I thought the pilot of a plane had fallen asleep at the wheel or had a heart attack.

11 Years Ago, I was in Biology when we watched a second plane hit.

11 Years Ago, I walked to Physics in shock.

11 Years Ago, I was in Physics when the towers fell.

11 Years Ago, my mom left school in a hurry to get me gas.

11 Years Ago, I sat in class after class glued to the T.V.

11 Years Ago, I was scared...

11 Years Ago, I didn't know the future.

Now I sit 11 years later, typing this in my mom's house with a husband, a little boy, a house for sale in a different town...I still don't know the future.

I am confident that God delivers time and time again.  He provides and He is my Refuge.  He loves me and He cares for me.

I'll trust in that.

Quite possibly the most moving post/tribute I have read all day about this awful date in time! The last paragraph offers so much hope to us all. Love you sweet girl!
