Well, so, here I am. April 30, 2016.

Five years ago today I married the love of my life!! What a wonderful day it was!


I look back over the last five years and with the exception of this last one I can honestly say it was the best of times!

And this past year? I cannot say it was the worst of times because even with great loss – I have fabulous memories!!

Randy and I loved being married!

We loved working together in our church!

We loved working together at Curly Girl!

We loved playing Words With Friends!

We loved reading together!

We loved watching TV together!

He was my biggest cheerleader!

I loved him with all my heart and he loved me with all his heart.

If a marriage can be perfect – ours was as perfect as they come!
Maybe because of our age?

But I believe it was because God brought us together for a reason!
It was a miracle that we met!

Shout out to my brother-in-law Steve who talked me into getting on I will be forever grateful to you for that.

I could get really sappy in this post…. but I’m really not a sappy type of person! (I don’t even like Nicholas Sparks’ books!) But if/when I ever do get sappy you can bet it will be over Randy!!

So, dear readers – savor each moment.
 Hug a lot.
Say “I love you” often.
 Hold hands.
Praise and encourage one another.
 Look for the good in one another.
 Be your mates cheerleader.
 Pray for one another!

Be thankful for every moment you have together!!
