Hello again! It’s been a while. Sorry for not blogging last week, I was out of town. For those of you who watched, I hoped you enjoyed it!
I’m sitting here at my computer and I’m having a bit of a struggle trying to get my thoughts together. Within the past month parts of our nation have endured wild fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, devastating floods, and today marks the tenth anniversary of 9/11/01, a day that forever changed this country and continues to affect so many.
I want to share a story with you regarding a fan encounter that I had yesterday. I was doing an appearance in New Jersey with my husband, kids, and Jacqueline. A woman came up to me with a beautiful young girl by her side. I did the usual thank you for watching photo op, and the woman pulled me aside and started to cry. She began to explain to me that she had lost her husband in the Twin Towers on 9/11 and that the young girl beside her was her daughter. I looked over at the young girl and she had tears in her eyes. I guess she knew what her mom was telling me, and then she smiled. Her mom told me that meeting us was just the diversion she needed to make a very difficult day somewhat bearable for her daughter. She then thanked me and hugged me.
