Pearl Harbor Day – Mom’s Birthday

Pearlharbor

My Mother was born on December 7th, she was a year old when the US was attacked in 1941. Norway’s reaction was pretty much the same then as it was in 2001, 60 years later. Horror and an outcry of support, as much as they could while being overridden with Nazis at the time.

So I’m honoring two important events today, my Mothers birthday and Pearl Harbor day. Take a moment to remember Pearl Harbor and the men and women who died that day. Their memory lives on.

Mom has been dead 2 years as of November 29th, we miss her and mourn her passing, it’s still hard to believe she is gone and I still pick up the phone to call her and catch myself. She was the one person you knew you could count on no matter what, I miss her very much.

We are going out tonight, like last year to celebrate her birthday and (Skål) toast a very special woman and Mother.

 

Skål Mom!

Today is a day to remember, as are the now almost forgotten V-Days :).
