the forgotten document

kids Posted by Hello



how in the world could i forget?

i found the 4 page document while i was searching for Madame Guyon’s poem . . .
i was amazed that i had forgotten it’s existence.


what document is that, you ask?

why this absolutely lovely 4 page declaration of love, that my husband wrote to me for our 25th wedding anniversary!

Leo is no poet, or even a willing letter writer . . . yet as i re-read the sentiments he had penned, i couldn't believe how articulate he was . . .he remembered so many good things about our life together . . . there was such romance in his note, even after 25 years . . .

i’m smiling as i type this . . . that was such a sweet ending to this day . . .

Love refreshed. Is that your wedding picture?

yup, our wedding day, 1974 ... it seems like only yesterday on one hand, and on the other hand it seems like a few lifetimes away ...

even this morning i can't believe how i could forget that note that leo penned? i must have been in a down place during that time - i wanted our 25th anniversary to be a certain way (didn't happen), and i think i was more uptight about Leo's disability at that time ... shame on me - sigh, you should see that lovely note and how wonderful he thought i was (he says he still believes every word he wrote - ding ding ding, correct answer!!)...

i wanted to share the sweet stuff, after sharing the sad stuff ...

has the water in your yard gone down? hope so!! blessings on your day . . .

when husbands annoy us, we should try to remember the sweet things they are capable of as well! :o)

Squish, Squish, Squish ... water in my yard? What water? Ha ha ha ha! It's just at a nice soggy mud level. Thank goodness I have a bit of grass so it's not a big glob of mud. I'm gonna go over to Lowe's today and buy some drain stuff. :) It's sunny here today.

Also, I think God showed you that note to lift your spirits. :)

Jeanette . . . do you have rubber boots? i have boys rubber boots that i wear during the spring/fall rains . . . so that i can go walk through some of the soggy areas . . . i like to walk in snow and in rain . . . and yes, i think the Lord showed me Leo's note to pick up my spirits . . . our God does stuff like that for His children - isn't HE cool!

Debra . . . ya, aren't we cute??? i look at that picture and think "YIKES, we were babies!!!" when we got married - not knowing any better, thinking all kinds of romantic dreams about married life . . . and even tho' reality stepped and knocked us around a bit, God also stepped in and helped us keep our vows to each other . . . :o)

I have snow boots that I can wear out there, if I need to. Mostly, I just stand on my patio and stare at the gleaming grass. It should be dry enough that I can go back there and put the rain gutter extensions on. I bought some yard divider, too, so my neighbor's water stays on her side. :)
