Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Anniversary


My husband and I are celebrating our 49th Wedding Anniversary today. I’m still trying to figure out where the years went. Seems like only yesterday, we began our life together. I guess what that song says, “Don’t Blink A Hundred Years Goes Quicker Than You Think” is true. We have much to be thankful for.  


We are especially thankful for all the blessings God has bestowed on us over these years. Yes, there’s been some rough times, but love and support of our family has made it all worthwhile. 


When we look back and reflect on all we’ve been through and all the blessings we’ve received - six wonderful children who have added three more sons and two more daughters to our family.  Together, they have blessed us with fourteen precious grandchildren. 


Now the family is extended further with the blessings of the grandchildren’s spouses and so far one great grandchild – we can’t thank or praise God enough. 


We're going to spend the day with our children and grandchildren  We'll miss my granddaughter, Sarah and her husband, John, and our grandson, Nick,  but they'll be with us in spirit, and we look forward to the day they all come home. John is serving our country in the Navy, and Nick as a Marine. 


To us the holidays and life is about family and the love we share. God has certainly given it to us in abundance. I can’t imagine what it would be like without our children and grandchildren. Each and everyone are special in their own unique way. We cherish all of them. We are so Thankful.

 Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone.

What a beautiful bride you were Ro!! Goodness. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Thank you for sharing this time with us. Thank you for sharing a part of your story. Thank you for all those times you've been there for me. Thank you for the laughter we've shared. Thank you for the amazing person you are. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for the sacrifice you've made in time away from your sons and the sacrifice they've made for us in all they do.

I'd also like to thank you for the love you have for our Lord Jesus. We laugh about cyber cheesecake and cyber snicker doodles but the cyber bread I'm breaking with you is more real than reality itself.

I love you Ro. From my house to yours. Happy Thanksgiving.
