Today is 9/11/11. Ten years ago, life as Americans changed. We went from being free from worry (and insanely long airport security checks) and grief to being a nation stricken with the terror of hatred. For ten years, every September has brought about sadness for all.

For those who lost someone that tragic day, today is a hard day. Each year that passes when someone dies should make it easier, but somehow, it doesn’t.

It got me thinking about some important anniversary dates in my life…

September 28th, 1984- my birthday!


December 11th, 2007- My first date with Tim


April 4th, 2009- My wedding day

June 16, 1960- My mom’s birthday

December 31st, 1951- My dad’s birthday

July 30th, 2004- My mom’s passing

June 5th, 2003- my high school graduation

July 2nd, 1981-Tim’s birthday

December 25th- Christmas

January 1st- New Years Day

February 14th- Valentine’s Day

Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day….

There’s a lot of things to remember and to commemorate. Some include celebrations and gifts, others silent moments of memories and mourning the loss of something or someone in our lives.

Today, as we commemorate such a horrendous day, I offer up a prayer to those who grieve today and those who celebrate their survival. Grace and peace be with you today.
