11 | 11

On this day, November 11, most people are (rightly) remembering veterans that served this country.  This day, however, to me, is about remembering my mom and dad's anniversary.  They were married for 11 years when my father died in 1979, and I constantly wonder if they would have had a long marriage.  As I've stated, my mother died 20 years ago, now, but I often fantasize what our family's life would have been like if they were still around.  Would they have still been married, would they have had a great marriage, how different would I have been ? 

Unfortunately, nobody can know. 

But the picture in my head is amazing.
