Where were you when?
Oh, I was.....
And I remember right after that......
Do those phrases sound familiar? I bet they do. We've all said them. We'll say them again today. Because today is Where Were You Wednesday. Below is an event.....tell where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news.
I'm sorry to start off with such a sad Where Were You When, but I remember this time so vividly.
I was driving down the driveway (we had/have a really long driveway!) with my kids in the car. We were on our way to my daughter's soccer game. My hubby was walking up the driveway with the newspaper and he told me the news.
"Did you hear about Princess Di?" Him--hubby.
"No what?" Me!
"She died last night." Him--
Me--tearing up. "No. What happened."
I don't remember exactly what he said here--something about the car wreck.
I started crying and kept crying all the way to the soccer game.
Of course I didn't know her, but we were the same age, we had children the same age--she was someone I identified with.
And she was so beautiful--and had those darling boys.
My friend Julie and I went downtown to sign the guest book when it came to Atlanta.
So, Where Were You?
