Have I told you about this family? This is a family only God can create. We are a hodge podge of individuals that God mixed together and called us FAMILY. I wouldn’t trade a single second of it. There have been bumps and there have been victories but most of all our children; Brett, Samantha, Josh and Erin and Grandchildren; Zoe and Carter have been a source of joy. I am so thankful.
Dennis and I have worked hard together and by the grace of our sovereign Lord to provide a shelter and comfort for our children and one another. The key has been to do it for one another and then your children. If you come away with anything from my Blogs please come away with, TAKE CARE of YOUR SPOUSE.
This week on December 7 we will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. You will have to read my book to know the complete road that got us here! But we’ve had some crappy anniversaries, romantic anniversaries, nice anniversaries, anniversaries separated because of fellowship, busy because of school activities. Well this year will be a first. Yep this year….
Dennis and I decided for our anniversary we were going to Las Vegas, go see a show; Cirque, Phantom or something like that; have dinner, maybe spend the night. While looking for tickets for different shows I saw the National Rodeo Championships are going on for the next 2 weeks. They even have a cowboy Christmas sale in one of the largest Convention centers in the city. I mentioned it to Dennis, we looked at tickets and he said no way, we are not spending that much for a RODEO. OK good we are back on the Cirque thing 🙂 After spending the week in the cath lab, speaking to nurses and techs, they told him it is totally worth it! Most of them have gone because, “You have to see it at least once.” So, we are going to the National Championship Rodeo tomorrow night in Las Vegas. We’re going to sport our boots and tight jeans and blend in with the crowd!!
I’m telling you what, I never saw this coming. I married a guy who lived in East Grand Rapids, he wore polos and docksiders and blew dry his hair. Now I am wearing camouflage and cowboy boots.
Who delights greatly in His commandments.His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches will be in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
