Remember when you were a kid, and the night before something big you couldn't sleep? For me, it might have been Christmas, going to the beach, or the first day of school. If I was excited, I wasn't sleeping. I haven't had that experience in years. Until last night. So I got up early and did the "30 Day Stride".
I'm so excited and so thankful to all my friends and family. I hope that I can convey my thanks and happiness to each one of them when I see them today.
And I'm also thankful today is D-Day. Without the success and sacrifices of those brave young men 65 years ago, as well as the contributions of our Armed Forces throughout WWII, and all conflicts before and after that, I would not be able to enjoy my rights and freedoms in Canada. We knew today was D-Day when we chose the day; and we were okay with that. Please take a moment to give thanks for the young men who died at D-Day.
P.S. Sorry for the pity party last night. I mean, come on - if that's the worst day I had during this whole process, I'm very lucky. And, as the song goes, "ain't nothing gonna break my stride" today!. (Can you tell I was born on a Wednesday? I normally try to be positive, and almost always see the silver lining, so don't worry about me - I'm great today!
P.S.2 Wanna hear our first dance song? It's "Better Together". :)
