Mom Just Amazes Me

Today, she pipes up with the information that today was her wedding day, 9/11/1943.

Now, I KNOW that had to have happened some time, but I never gave much thought to when the celebration was...

I know when she remarried, eleven years after Dad died... After asking each of her four children separately and in secret if we thought she was being disloyal to the memory of our Dad if she remarried.

I don't know what everyone else said to her, but I told her even the Bible only required ONE YEAR of mourning. If it would make her happy, go for it. To me, it doesn't change the relationship she and Dad shared at all.
