Now and then...A very happy 36th Wedding Anniversary for Randy & I

Now...a photo of Randy and I taken not too long ago.

And back then...Our Wedding Picture
I married my best friend-
November 16, 1974
 Blessed? From the roof top..."YES"

Inside the card Randy created, oh so sweet...
'I love you 36 times more today than on our Wedding day.
I am praying for a very happy 36th Anniversary.'
He typed 'Patricia'...that is rare and lovely. :-)

A funny card from our great friend Jim,
"Burrito for Lunch?"  "Broccoli."   Love means never having to say, "Excuse me."...just kidding!

Beautiful red roses delivered to work. I was VERY surprised.  Our Anniversary REALLY bloomed as we sat out on the veranda talking and watching the sunset and our dogs Benedict and Mocha acting goofy. The night sky filled with stars and white clouds. Our veranda is the place that our family has the best conversations about God and life.

Randy said  "A blue bottle for you".
I replied "Thank you, you know I'll create something special with it."

This morning I just had to get a little memory post of our 36th Wedding Anniversary together to share and a little message to my husband and blogging friends...

Randy, thank you for your love and kindness for the most beautiful 36th Wedding Anniversary. My heart is smiling really big at this time in our life. We are very blessed to have the attention of one another and I am looking forward to many more years with you. I thank you for going to Mass with me yesterday morning, the gifts...the fantastic dinner, gorgeous roses, the message in the cards (one home!) the gift tucked inside and then you insisted to wash the dishes. In case your wondering if we have a dish washer...we are 'it'.

Friends, we have learned over the years that true love IS having to say you're sorry, it's very VERY important to be fast to forgive and oh yes don't forget to say... "Excuse me."

Randy, thank your for your prayer as we know it was answered best have all my love and attention.

God is so good.
