Today another year older, but happier and wiser than ever! I have received well wishes from my Clay who gave me the most beautiful card (also some speakers for my computer) we always try to outdo each other when we share cards! On our 22nd Wedding Anniversary we picked out the same card for each other – we really had a laugh on that one. Have received birthday wishes from Kay and Susan (cousins), Jaydee (Amazon gift certificate – thank you so much), my friend Bonnie and wishes from my older step son Ricky (who will call me later this evening) my younger stepson George will call later today.
My friend Cathy sent me a pin cushion that she made (Rabbit this year) and one last year(Remember Me) that I forgot to showcase! She is so talented and such a dear friend! Cathy always sends Clay and I a card on special holidays and we so enjoy them.
Then the biggest surprise that came today from Lori. Thank you so much Lori for the beautiful flowers!
I have so much to be thankful for, especially my great quilting buddies, Jaydee, Jan, Gretchen, Cathy and Lori who listen to me when I am on a roll, or rolling down the hill! Great friends and great Step-sons who love me who would be with me if I needed them!
I am extremely blessed with my Clay – we would both be lost without the other – we were so blessed to have God put us together. Someday I may post that happening. We grew up together on the same street, attended the same school, never dated, and he located me when I lived in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area on 3 June 1996! Married on 2 August 1996 and again in our church on 1 September 1996 – The 3-2-1 Courtship! We retired in March/April 1999 and have not been apart since. Lots of good memories and lots of sad memories, but through them all we are still together!!!
I have had a great Halloween Birthday this year! To add to the “happy”, we are leaving for a 2 week trip to Sierra Vista, Arizona soon. We have not been there since we sold our RV in 2016. This time it is “hotel” time! We are both anxious to get back to Arizona and visit our friends and play Touristo in Tombstone, Bisbee, Tucson, and of course all the quilt stores that I used to frequent in the area!
Have a great day!
