But mostly, I like to think about the other things that this day, September 11, marks.
They're happy things! Good things! Today is my mom's birthday! So, happy birthday, dearest of all mothers, and may it be a lovely one. You know we'd all love to be there to celebrate with you. Instead, how about a super-cute picture of us from the last time we were there?
And.... today is ALSO my parents' anniversary! If I've done my math correctly, this is the celebration of their 31st year together. Mom and Dad have always been a great example of a godly marriage, and I know how much they love each other. It's a blessing to have parents like them, and I pray they can enjoy many, many more years of being together.
The funny thing is that Dad actually had to leave on a trip to Canada today, so the birthday/anniversary celebration will be sadly lacking. I know a blog post from their daughter won't make up for the fact that they can't be together, but I wanted to do what I could to brighten the day. :)
Happy Anniversary, sweet parents!!
An all-around happy day, I'd say. Whee!
