Today we celebrate:

R U OK?Day - Celebrated on the second Thursday in September, this is a day to prevent suicide from happening by asking your friends, “R U OK?”, listening to the answer, encouraging that person to seek help and following up with them to monitor whether there is any improvement in their situation.

National Hot Cross Bun Day – These delicious buns were usually eaten only on Good Friday but these days you can have them any time of year.

Make Your Bed Day – This is a great day! I really like this one. I think I'll print out this day and post it on my children's bedroom doors.

No News Is Good News Day – This is my mantra whenever my children are away from me and I start to worry about them for no reason whatsoever. I remind myself that if something goes wrong, I'll get a phone call or something. You should remind yourself of that today as well.

Libraries Remember Day – On this day, Libraries commemorate the tragedies of September 11, 2001. The Bensenville Community Public Library in Illinois remembers by staying open for the entire 24 hours of this day. Check with your local library to see if they have any special commemoration events going on.

National Day of Service and Remembrance (Patriot Day) – This is a day to remember and honor those who died on this day in 2001 by doing whatever you can to help others in need. It isn't hard to find community service projects that need your help. Seek them out and keep those who were lost in mind while you do.

To celebrate today, make your bed and eat hot cross buns while you check in with all your friends to make sure they are okay.  If you can’t get in touch then remember that no news is good news. Then check with your local library to see if they have any remembrance activities you can participate in.
