We did not do school yesterday so we made it up today. Tara and I lit a candle this morning in remembrance of all those who died today 9 years ago. The kids asked about it, so I told them. It was a very hard thing to do though. How do you explain to a 6 year old and an almost 5 year old how scary that day was? Do you even want them to know? I did the best I could, explaining what happened (without even mentioning Muslims). We told them that was the reason for Daddy being away from us. We also watched a short clip on the towers falling. I was torn on if I would show them, but they are both pretty advanced and I figured they could handle it. They did well with the short lesson.

I love this song and think it's completely appropriate for Michael and I.
No matter what other people have thought about our relationship Michael and I have stayed strong, we've had our problems and managed to work through them and stay strong. I love him more today than I did 13 years ago when I met him. Yesterday was his birthday and I think it was a great day to celebrate, the birth of the amazing man I call my husband. I love you baby!!
