The Very Worst Day of the Year…

My story is appearing today on Mamalode… I will do my best to update this page with the link today, but frankly, today just really really sucks for me.

I did have two pictures I wanted to share with you.

First is a picture of a gift from the Firefighter I delivered water with around Ground Zero. (I seriously would love to talk to him.  Are you him? Do you know him? If so email me at thepurposefulpappy@gmail.com)

He said that this Beanie Baby that he said his daughter had given him.  He told me to hold on to it and to remember him always.  Trust me, I will NEVER FORGET.

Next is a picture of a Rosary that was given to me by a Chaplin at Ground Zero.  I am not Catholic, but I have a deep and abiding faith.  There is power in it.

I have so much more I want to say, but right now I just can’t.  Never Forget those who died.  Never Never Never Forget.

  1. As I lay here beside your sweet little girl who is kicking her foot trying to go to sleep I remember you as a little boy and smile. Then I look at you today and am mso proud of the incredible man, husband and father you have become and tears of joy fall from my eyes. I love you and we will never forget that day or those like you that sacrificed to help those u didn’t even know. We also will never forget those who lost their lives. We love and respect you all.
