Day 27 of 31
As I was thinking about what I wanted to write about today, I was cleaning out some files and came across this note.
In 2008 my daughter was 9 years old. She was watching a lunar eclipse with my husband and she mentioned that there would be a total solar eclipse on August 20, 2017 and that it would be so cool to see one in person. She wrote this note to my husband on a scrap of paper to remind them about it. Unbeknownst to her, my husband kept the note in his wallet for nine years. Yes, nine years!
As August 2017 began the news that there would be a solar eclipse in North America was taking center stage. There were stories on TV and in the newspaper leading up to the big event. Kelly again mentioned that it would be cool to see the solar eclipse. As she talked about it, my husband reached in his wallet and took out the note. He then told her that the two of them were flying to Nashville to see the eclipse.
This is the text I received when they witnessed the eclipse.
