Today, John and I celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary!!
And they said it would never last!
I was a secretary at a big chemical plant and John came to start up the plant. We went on our first date and six weeks later, were married in my folks home - 20 North Ora.
I am so grateful for the husband the Lord picked out for me and all of the years we've been married. John worked for the same company all these years and retired three years ago. As most of you know, he is undergoing cancer treatment now and I thank the Lord daily for what he has meant in my life and we are looking forward to this stage being over with and going on with the fun stuff!!
I've got to travel alot with him because of his work and we've had some real experiences. We were in Florida watching the Space Shuttle take off when it exploded, he's taken me to Key West, Florida several times because he knows I love it down there, we've made several trips to Washington, D.C. because I know he loves it there and many other wonderful times.
There have been tense moments like when I knew he was in Oklahoma City less that a mile from the Murray Federal Building when it was bombed. Thank goodness, other than being practically knocked out of his chair, he was fine and headed home.
But, I am very blessed to call him my dear husband!!
(Look how skinny I was and how dark my hair was!! )
And sadly, this date - August 31st - is also the day our precious Landen passed away. So, this day is kind of bittersweet - one of the best and one of the worse. But, we know that he is in Heaven probably running my parents ragged. LOL
Till next time, Judy
