Thirty one years ago today, we pledged our love to one another forever. We believed in love and each other and the faithfulness of God. We were so young and had so much life yet to experience. Life filled with ordinary days, with moments too wonderful for words, and a few days almost too difficult to bear. I can truly say not one day has passed in these thirty one years that I have not thanked God for so wisely choosing you for me.
Today we are much older and hopefully much wiser and still believe in love and each other and know much more fully the awesome faithfulness of God. I love you so much more today than I knew was possible and can't wait to begin thirty more years of tomorrows...
WoW...what an eventful week. My sweet hubby went to bed one night last week feeling great and woke up in the middle of the night in intense pain. We ended up in the ER and then admitted to the hospital with a great big kidney stone. The offending stone has been crushed and will hopefully be history soon! Tom and Jen brought the girls up to see grandpa in the hospital. To prepare Olivia a bit so she wouldn't be freaked out they were talking about the hospital. It is the same one where she was born and where she came to visit her little sister Ella and her cousin when they were born.
You have probably already figured out where this story is headed :o) Naturally (to a three year old) she asked her mama if Grandpa Andy and Grandma Terry were going to bring a baby home from the hospital too!!! NO DEAR GIRL--WE ARE NOT bringing a baby home, although Grandpa Andy thought his pain was comparable to giving birth.
About me--hummmmmm... I have been married for 35 years to the most wonderful, godly man. It is truly my joy to be his wife. We have two awesome kids--both grown and married to pretty terrific spouses. I am the secretary at our church and handle the Women's ministry. The most exciting part of my life is being grandma to our beautiful, spunky grand kiddos Olivia Grace, Ella Faith, Jacob Thomas, and Harrison Andrew. It is so much fun to have little ones in our house from time to time--and a blessing to savor the quiet again when they go home! Being grammy continues to bring a special kind of joy to my life that I can't quite explain and wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
