(Dictionary.com definition)
On this very day 12 years ago, a single event shook the world. A lot can be said, has been said & will continue to be said I’m sure as the pages of history continue to be written. Our hearts and prayers will always be broken with the memory of those who lost their lives and those who were separated from their loved ones.

And yet even in great loss, came great resolve from the heroes and heroines who gave their all to help on that tragic day. As we take a moment to remember, there is much to be learned from that day….
One thing is, unfortunately, we don’t and never will be able to predict the future. None of us know what will happen next in our lives & in the lives of others. Rather than worrying about things we don’t know or that are yet to happen, we can trust in the One who knows the end from the beginning.
Many times, we don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone. We wait for those moments to cherish what we once had. So as we think about that day, let us cherish the loved ones we still have in our lives & remember that justice, mercy, hope and love still resides.

Love this quote from 1 of the firemen! It is these everyday unsung heroes who constantly put their lives on the line for people they don’t know who should be getting the accolades. We salute you! And we thank you 🙂 not only for your bravery shown on 9/11, but on every other day you decide to put on your fire pants 1 leg at a time!

Though things may fall down around us, physically, emotionally, relationally, financially ….. though we may fall, we can get up! And that’s what can be said for the amazing character and spirit shown so brightly on that tragic day.

    Pretty impressive post to read from Meloney Niblett who is the CEO of Beauty.id and an aspiring blogger.
    See what happens when you set your goals high…you reach them!
    My mother Ramona, who is now 82 years young, always told me to do the best I can possibly do or don’t do it at all. That is what I have done in life and once you make the most of your God-Given Talents and Abilities, you too, will accomplish anything you “set your mind to do!”

  2. Thank you Paulette for taking the time to read, like and reblog my post! I appreciate your encouragement 🙂 This is all very new to me but just taking a step of faith & seeing if there will be any fruit. My main hope is that ‘Reflections’ will help, encourage and inspire others who happen to cross its path 🙂 Great what you’re doing also and your mother sounds like an amazing woman! Let’s continue to do our best with whatever we “set our minds to”!
