brown eyed fox

quiet... cozy... reflective

ten years ago yesterday those toes were about to enter the world.
they were warm in my belly... when i fell to my knees in shock and sorrow.
seeing it all unfold live on tv.

with campbell feeling under the weather... having a cozy weekend in...
i found myself glued to all the stories on the tv once again.
amazing... sad... not even imaginable... life-altering... very inspiring... stories.

reflecting... remembering... praying for those families that lost so much.
the one thing that kept striking me... as i watched...
how truly amazing the human spirit is!
their determination... resilience... faith... their pride!

the girls wanted red toes... "like the flag mom"...
i was more than happy to pull out the brushes.
what a gift... to not only paint those same ten toes...
now in the world & all grown but...
a whole other precious set of ten too.

riley wanted to make a flag.
after making a cross with "love" in the middle...
she was determined to make her special piece just right!

i think she did!

and campbell's piece... she said "it's people helping people".
i don't think i could have come up with anything better.

i know it's hard for them to understand what happened on 9/11...
it's hard for anyone...
i just pray that they see the same spirit and strength...
and go out into the word doing just that...
BEing people helping people.
