5 years ago today

Can you believe it has been 5 years? My sister and I actually helped with the search and I had an "Elizabeth Smart" button on my purse until she was found as well as a flier on my van. Such a scary, surreal thing... I am so thankful she was found.
The video I embeded didn't work so here's a link to more about Elizabeth Smart: Click HERE.

Weird you should mention this. Here's what I think of on March 12th (in no particular order):

~Elizabeth Smart was found (x) number of years ago today.

~Swampbaby had a baby that day.

~I had a baby exactly one year later.

I remember you called me when I had just fallen asleep in my hospital bed and told me they had found Elizabeth Smart. I immediately was sad because I figured her body was found, but you added, "She was alive!" and I totally sat up and turned on the news.

PS nothing came up for me on the video. Just "Yahoo!"

Wow. I hadn't realize that it had been 5 years. Al had the day off and we were in RiteAid when it was announced. We rushed home to watch the news the rest of the day. She is Steve's age.

That was a day where we saw a miracle.

I couldn't believe it had been 5 years, then I remembered Lauren was in 9th grade and we were in California on her school choir tour, and we saw the wonderful news in our hotel room. Lauren and the other girls in the room with me were so excited, and I cried with happiness.
