2017's Word of the Year

2017 word of the year- Enjoy- I will strive to relax and enjoy life more in 2017. My goal is not to get stressed about little details but to enjoy the things that God has given me, big and small.

Monday, May 9

Once upon a time....

 This girl...

 and this boy...

 decided they kind of liked each other and started to date. This is from their junior prom.

 And Senior Prom
(wow, I loved those shoes...wish I still had them.)


Here is high school graduation....


 and a wedding...
(it was a very busy month)
Then the boy left for basic training in the Air Force, came back a man and the true adventure began.That was 30 years ago. He is still my best friend and I can't imagine going through life without him. We have five children, 2  and almost 3 grandchildren, and have gone through multiple trials. I wouldn't have wanted to do it with anybody but him. God has kept us leaning on Him and each other. Life hasn't always been easy, but it's been good. If I could pass one thing on to my children it is to stick through the hard times, because you don't get diamonds without lots of pressure.

We've decided to shoot for another 30 years. We'll still be under 80...that seems do-able.
Happy Anniversary to my dear husband, who deserves better than me but stuck with me anyway.
