Reds, whites, ourtdoor fun, and mushy stuff.

Today is our 41st Anniversary so I have put
together just some random pictures,
and some even more random thoughts for our special day.

I'm married to hard workin' guy.

He not only maintains our home of 38 years,
but our business property, too.

And, although he rarely utters a word of complaint,
I have gotten some 'looks' at times. =0)
(this is not one of him
He won't let me take those pictures!) =0)

But mostly, he is a happy guy.

After all his hard work,
he deserves a rest.

Sometimes it's sitting on the couch
with a cup of coffee...

or laying down for a serious nap.

or maybe recouping with a round of golf.

And now he has retired
after 38 years of work.
38 years of supporting a family.

And I am most grateful to him for all his hard work.

In addition to all his hard work,
and recoup time on the golf course,
we play together.
Laugh together.

and celebrate life toghether.

He is a wonderful Dad,

and Grandpa.

And a loving husband.

who knows how to make me feel special...
with love notes in he sand....

even helps pick up rocks

for his wife to paint on. =0)

He is a gift to me from the Lord.

My prayer for him is that he will
have good health for many years so he can enjoy retirement,
and that he will walk each day with our Lord..

and that we will...
each other, with a deeper love,
as we grow closer together, and closer to the Lord..

Happy Anniversary my sweet fella.
