Not only do I have a major concert (Brahms, baby! And it is gonna be GOOD) to sing for tomorrow night (and dress rehearsal tonight) but it is also Mother's Day on Sunday (obviously) and also Todd and my 12th anniversary. Twelve years on the twelfth. That makes it a golden anniversary or something, doesn't it? Not that we have anything really special planned since we are kinda busy already, but that's okay.
It reminds me of a conversation Todd had with his father many years back. Todd's parent's anniversary was approaching and Todd asked his dad if they were going to renew their vows to celebrate. Todd's dad looked at him and said, "Son, I renew my vows to your mother every morning when I get out of bed. Each day I renew my vows. I don't need a special ceremony to do that."
That stuck with me. And I think Todd and I both try to live that way too.
So, while I could be posting a lovely anniversary story on Sunday (maybe like this one or this one), or telling you again about how wonderful my husband is (like I did here), or even letting you in on The Story of Us, I will instead be celebrating the wonderful mothers we are fortunate to have. And I feel blessed to be able to do so.
If you want to get a jump start on Mother's Day weekend please go to Elaine's blog and read her beautiful post. It is such a gorgeous tribute to mothers and I am honored she allowed me to be a part of it. Thanks, Elaine! And well done!
Good music, celebrating mothers, celebrating love. It is going to be a lovely weekend. I hope you all have a perfectly lovely Mother's Day weekend as well!
