BLINK....AND IT'S GONE!

Last Thursday I visited with my daughter-in-law and three of her college friends and their children...all together there were four mommies, six kids under the age of three and one grand-mommy, ME! Needless to say it was a little loud...but on the most part happy....there is something to be said about all that commotion....it's gone in a blink! When you are right in the middle of it, it sometimes seems like tomorrow will never get here....but when this stage of your life is over, you realize that most of what you thought was important then, doesn't even register on the importance scale now. So thanks girls for letting me share in the joy of that day.

Three weeks ago we celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. Shame on me for not posting this sooner...We were married on March 20th 1976....the first day of Spring is a great day to get married....every year we celebrate the beginning of another year together...we have been so blessed to have made it through difficulties and storms and have lived to experience the new beginings each year. As we get older, our time together seems more and more important...we will live together forever in eternity and that is a very comforting thought. Just a touch on the hand or a special look shared goes straight to the heart. He still drives me crazy...you know, leaving the cabinet doors open, not ever really understanding how the dishwasher works, all those man things....but....I'm madly in love with this crazy, hardworking, living on the edge man and I'm forever grateful to GOD for putting us together.....so here's to another 32 years! we still have time for that, I'd be 88 and he'd be 89!

You know, somehow I saved your blog to were it only showed me your post from Feb. and I thought you hadn't updated it!! Geez. Anyway, I had to read both you last posts and I must say, 1. I'm so glad you got to come and enjoy our day of fun with all our kiddos! How funny how our lives have all changed in less than 3 years and now all the 'commotion' is joyful noise of our blessings! 2. God 'kept' you around for more reasons than you realize. Being a Godly woman is hard these days, and knowing one is even harder to come by. Me being one of the ones I know that has asked for prayer from you, it is awesome knowing that you won't just say "ok", but that you will send up as much love, support and worry to God that you can. You are a blessing and I'm so glad to be able to call you a friend!!
