Five Minute Friday: Anniversary

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with other writers. We are given a one-word prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is Anniversary.


Anniversaries are days to remember special events.

My husband and I will soon celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. I remember our wedding in Vail, Colorado like it was yesterday. We exchanged our vows in a church on the mountainside and celebrated with close family and friends at the Lodge.

I always remember the anniversary of my open heart surgery. 1960 was so many years ago, but that date is marked on my calendar. My congenital heart defect was corrected when I was a child. But the events that transpired are also etched in my mind like it was yesterday.

Anniversaries are events that changed the course of my life. Not all are happy events. I think of the day my mom left this earth. But I mark them down on my calendar so I will not forget. It's good to celebrate. And it's good to look back and remember.


Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. It is good to remember all of life and all of the things that make it shine and cloudy. That's how stories are built. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is really wonderful, Debbie. If we lose our past, we lose a large part of who we are.

    #1 at FMF this week.


  3. It's good to write down anniversaries... I forget so often. I do remember those anniversaries that fall on 'special days' like my mom's passing just beyond midnight of 4th of July.. but I often forget how many years. Past twenty --- but I always have to ask someone.


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
