Yesterday I dropped a cast iron lid on my kitchen floor. The loud
noise of it triggered our house alarm and I heard a voice from the
control panel saying, "Broken glass in dining area."
I rushed over to the panel where a man over the speaker asked if I
was okay. I told him it was just a lid that fell, no windows broke.
We chatted a bit and then he said, "Have a Happy 4th of July
Oh that's right, the 4th is tomorrow, I thought.
Then later on last night as I was leaving my neighborhood
bookclub a few of the ladies said to me as I was headed out the
door, "Happy 4th of July tomorrow!"
Oh right, I forgot again. I just wasn't feeling it this year. I'd had so
many other things on my mind.
Then this morning I got this text from my sister.
December, it's time for me to say God Bless America today.
