No coffeehouse review here, I just thought I should take a moment to acknowledge those we lost 12 years ago and reflect just for a moment to be thankful.
My son wasn't even born yet. He wasn't due till Christmas Eve. I was getting ready for work when I got a call to turn on the news. I was filled with disbelief when I did so, I couldn't believe what I was watching. And I was stunned even more when I watched the second plane hit the second tower of the World Trade Center.
I knew life would never be the same for me, my family and my future children. This event made everything else in my life seem to hold no more value. I had grown up in piece-time, only hearing stories of war in far off lands, now it came home to us.
So now, 12 years down the road, I'm more thankful for the little things every day and hug my kids tight and tell them I love them every chance I get.
So I leave you with this. When you sip your freshly brewed coffee or receive it from your barista, be a little more thankful we can still enjoy the little things.
