I kind of think that most everyone will be reviewing this year in their minds, with family, and with friends, "Never thought we would see a year like we did this year." Will we even notice when 2021 rings in a new year? Or will we ring in 2021 with hopes that life will balance out and the virus will be only a memory? I feel like the year has just been one blur of events. It seems like yesterday our youngest grand was born, but she will be one in February. Our youngest just turned sixteen...seems like she was just four years old just a few days ago! Dad will soon be gone 5 months, and Mom has been gone just nine years. Birthday parties became birthday parades, visiting family became a drive by visit. We saw some family on a day to day basis....because you cannot babysit and social distance. As the year comes to a close and a new year draws near, one thing has remained the same....God. He is still on His throne, not surprised by any of the events that have taken place
Thirty-seven years ago today I said, "I do!", and today I still "I do!"! The years have been blessed with 14 children, 6 in-loves, and 13 grandchildren. Not a day has gone by that has been a perfect day. There is always some hic-cup or bump in the road, but we manage. Marriage is work. It is hard work. But it is worth every bit of it. This picture was taken at our surprise anniversary party last year. M y daddy is sitting between Hubby and me. I cried when I saw him sitting at the table. He NEVER wanted to go out ANYWHERE! But he came for ME!!! One daughter was suppose to be at college in South Carolina...she made a trip home to celebrate us! (ummm...so I notice that today I have on the same shirt as last year!!!!...if I knew we were going to be celebrated I sure would NOT have worn that! But I guess that is how it goes with surprises!) Anniversary card I made for Hubby today. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SWEETHEART! I LOVE YOU!
