After all the heart wrenching tragedies that have occurred in the world recently, including the Boston bombing, the West, Texas explosion, and horrible tornadoes in Granbury and Cleburne, Texas, it’s time to look at the positive events of life.

First, my husband and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary on May 18.  Actually we celebrated it the next day because we did so much work around the house on the 18th we were too tired to go out that evening.  That’s what getting older will do to you.


I am the luckiest woman in the world.  We’ve been through a lot of things together over these 39 years, and we love each other more today than ever.  Our theme song is sappy but the words are so true, it is Look At Us by Vince Gill.  Click HERE to hear and watch it in a You Tube video.

Next, my great niece Emma celebrated her one year birthday on May 22nd.
