September 11, 2017

I say it every year, but it is hard to believe that another year has passed since we have remembered this day.  A few years ago I shared some thoughts on this day.   You can view them here:


  1. I mentioned this in today's post, but I wanted to chime in as a former fire wife...My marriage to my fireman may have not lasted, but during our eleven years together that it's a calling to be a fireman's wife and you don't get it 'til you get it. I remember vividly crying uncontrollably at all those wives who kissed their husbands like they did ever other time they went to a shift, having no real clue what lay ahead. I dreaded that phone call or knock at the door. Mine never came either, thank goodness, but I wanted to take a minute and honor you for the role YOU play as a wife of a public servant who puts his life on the line every time he suits up! Thank you!

    1. Stephanie, this is the sweetest note! Thank you so much! <3
