Anne Frank

This morning while doing my morning stuff, I listened to an Audible book. Originally, I bought Audible books to listen to while driving. That proved unworkable. I am unable to keep attention to driving and listening to an Audible book at the same time.

This morning I listened to "The Diary of a Young Girl," by Anne Frank.

Each diary entry begins with the date. When I hear the date, I think about what I may have been doing on that date. This morning Anne began with,
"Saturday, November 27th, 1943." My sixth birthday.

I thought about what I may have done that day. For sure my Mom made a birthday party for me. I feel melancholy when I consider myself and Anne on that date.



  1. Rejoice! You still have your life...and a darn good one at that! Hers was cut short and you have had so many more years....enjoy them for her too.

  2. I was born in 1943......I did not see my father until age 2
    because I was a War Baby....

    Even as a toddler I remember my mother sobbing listening to Churchill's speeches.

    My mother and I lived in tiny apartment in Northern Minnesota.

    I have read the book many times..

  3. Knowing what happened to Anne Frank, is so sad. What happened to you, was so much better, even though life isn't always perfect or great. Blessings, Lynn
