I understand that today is National Daughter’s Day.  I have the most special, beautiful, loving, caring, kind daughter any mother could dream to have.  I am blessed to be considered her mother. 


I love you, baby girl. 


We’ve endured a lot together and we’ve had some great joys.  I treasure what we have. 


I treasure the adult friendship we’ve developed. You are an amazing and awesome woman. Never lose your sense of wonder. 
Most of all … I treasure YOU.

“Do you remember the 21st night of September?

Love was changing the minds of pretenders

While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing

In the key that our souls were singing.

As we danced in the night,

Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya, say do you remember

Ba de ya, dancing in September

Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day …”


I love this song.  It conjures up memories of carefree times in my 20s dancing the night away and makes me want to get up and DANCE.  😊

Today on Capitol Mall in Sacramento, I was truly honored to take my lunch so that I could watch the “Sacramento Hometown Heroes” Parade honoring Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone, the 3 gentlemen that averted a massacre in Paris, as well as to honor those that were lost 14 years ago in the 9-11 attack in New York City on the Twin Towers.

The French Consul General rode in the parade also. Del Campo High School and Sacramento State University bands played.  The CHP, the Sheriff Department, and the City Police all rode in the parade, as well as numerous members of the military.  The Sacramento Blue Star Moms also marched.  I salute my friend, Shawna Hill Fenison, one of the Gold Star Moms, and her beloved late son, PFC Ryan Hill.

I was proud to be in attendance.  It gave me chills.  I am proud of these 3 fine young men as well as the men and women who give so much to protect our country.
