This day has always been a special day for me. September 7th. When I was in 5th grade, I got to see the Jacksons (including Michael) perform. It's also the birthday of a friend whose life ended too early. And it's the birthday of the glorious Queen Elizabeth the I.
Elizabeth is a long time favorite. I am fascinated with her father, Henry VIII and his wives. The time period intrigues me. I love everything about it (with the exception of the murders, of course...). So I always enjoy paying tribute to the great Queen on her birthday.
This morning, I got to sing the National Anthem (solo) to kick off a softball game. It was the first time I been given the honor, and it's something I've always wanted to do. The best word I can think of to describe the feeling - electrifying. It was amazing and wonderful! Talk about a patriotic swell in your heart. Wow!
It made this September 7th as special as the others. I'm grateful for the privilege of performing our country's anthem. And I'm grateful for living in such an awesome country.
