Celebration Week!

This week for our family is a busy one! Our first grandchild is turning 8 tomorrow. We are going to surprise him and take him McDonalds to school......he LOVES chicken McNuggets! He called me on the phone the other day and said, "Grandma, guess what? I am in 2nd grade now!" I just adore that boy.

Then on Wednesday the 18th, my hubs and I celebrate our 37th Wedding Anniversary! We are going out for a "fancier" dinner, which I always look forward to. My husband is truly my best friend and the love of my life. We were 18 when we met, 19 when we married.....we knew NOTHING about being married!! but we KNEW we wanted to share life together. Through joy and heartache, sickness and health, my hubby has been my rock. When I didn't think I could make it through the next 5 minutes taking chemo, he would tell me I could do it, and I did. Believe me when I tell you, I KNOW many people do not have this blessing in their life, and I am forever grateful to the Lord for giving me such a wonderful man.

Happy Annivesary Hon!

This makes me cry. First of all you rock for getting thru that 'c' word. I lost my Mom, Dad & Step Father & I swear everytime I feel bad I worry I will get sick too. I love that you & your hubby got married so young & made it thru the very worst still in love! What a sweet surprise to your Grandson to bring nuggets to school. My kids just turned 5 & I'm in such a teary mood, cry over everything. 8, wow! Lisa

PS I looked at your house, it is all my 'non-colors'! Love it.

Oh, what a sweet post. I just read the one above too. What a nice dinner. I agree, a good marriage is truly a blessing I don't take for granted. We celebrate 35 years end of August. So we are trailing right behind you.
Congratulations! I wish you two many more years together. ~ Sarah
