Hey....it's Vertical Day!

Years ago, our niece, Becky, dubbed 11:11, either a.m. or p.m., a "vertical minute." Get it? Everytime I would look at the clock and it was 11:11, I always thought of Becky. So then November 11 rolled around, and it became Vertical Day. In the midst of concentrating on other things today, I forgot what day it is! Until the phone rang a few minutes ago, that is....

Now the cool thing about Vertical Day is that Becky and I try to share a vertical minute. She lives in the Chicago area, two-hour time difference. So when it is 11:11 a.m. here, it is 1:11 p.m. there. We try to call on the exact minute and share our vertical minute on Vertical Day. I know, probably kinda dorky. But it's still fun. And no matter where I am, day or night, if I look at my watch and it is 11:11, I always think of Becky and say a little prayer of thanks that she is in my life.
