October 28th has come and gone for the past 23 years with little fanfare. I did buy a big bouquet of yellow lilies for the kitchen counter and took the dog for an extra long walk enjoying the leaves at their peak.
We spent today as a family, first at church, then at a food truck rodeo stuffing our faces with bacon covered maple bourbon doughnuts, dumplings, ice cream, and the largest, greasiest burger I've ever seen. No calories counted, not a one on this day.
So many times I wish for a do-over. Not a single regret today. I got exactly what I wanted, a normal, nothing significant day spent with the people I love most.
Best of all, the chance to do it all again tomorrow.
