Strange how I always look at dates. In my time here, it is 8:36 pm on September 11, 2014. I remember being President of the local Chamber of Commerce and just starting into my term when the September 11th disaster happened. I remember driving my children to school and was listening to the radio and thought it was something of a hoax… could this be real? Or Orson Wells? Spent the afternoon with the new Executive Director we just hired watching in horror. That was 13 years ago.
Tomorrow is another date I remember. 27 years ago I said “I do” to the man I loved and had three beautiful children with. We would have been together for 27 years, and on September 26th, would have known each other for 34. Do I wonder sometimes what life would have been like if I had fought it out and stayed? Sometimes, but rarely. My only sadness is for my children, but they seem to be doing okay.
I love my little life now…. but it is incredibly weird how fast time goes by. But new dreams, new life, new friends and old friends still here, makes this all worth my time on this earth. Ask me if I would have even thought I would be married with children? Never. But I was, and did my part, and now back to what I knew I would end up like… loving architecture, knowing where I want to go, what I want, and working towards that dream… and best of all… bulimic free. 🙂
Do you have dates that come back in your mind randomly to remind you? Feel free to share. 🙂
