I Love Love!

I haven't gotten mushy in awhile. Indulge me.

Nah, I wouldn't call the cat and the chicken sharing space "love" exactly, but it warms my heart to see Opie-the-cat and Opah-the-hen sharing space. Isn't that sweet? (ignore the leaves in the screen porch)

This time next month, David and I will be celebrating 3 years of dating. Indeed, it is Our Turn at happiness in love! I sure do love the man and I am blessed beyond measure that he loves me back!
Speaking of love. My parents set one heck of an example of just how it all works. Mom and Dad celebrate 47 years of marriage this week. Forty seven. Wowsers!

Ok. So, their celebration included a tiny little trip to the hospital. Thus, the pretty bracelets and the cool ride Mom is sitting in. Ignore all that. Hippa prevents me from talking about all that. But, would you look at the love? They have got it!

Three kids & 2 grandkids. Education & careers. Worshipping, leading and following. Singing, laughing and dancing. Cherishing the moments. Making memories. Holding what they could and letting go of what they couldn't. Indeed. 47 years later, they are still holding hands and fighting to sit next to each other at the dinner table.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Thank you for loving each other and leading by example. I've been watching you for 43 years. The lessons you continue to give are not going unnoticed by child #3.
