We have lost so many loved ones on this day. It is so sad. Many years ago Joe and I had to put down my beloved little dog, Dinky, of seventeen years on this day, September 11. He provided so much affection and compassion for us and I miss his sweet smelling strawberry blonde fur and his contagious smile. He was a positive sunbeam in my life. I guess the strange thing about anniversaries is that even though the crossroads of grief and sorrow may be intertwining, if you persist and insist on the best of life, that is usually what you get. I’m thankful for my friends, my family and my life. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the families of 911.
