Seems like just a few years ago I was a kid playing with my sisters, riding a bike with a banana seat, screaming at the top of my lungs through the pipe on the swingset, playing tackle football with the neighborhood kids. I grew up fishing, learning how to clean fish, mowing lawns, climbing trees, and just enjoying pestering my sisters!
I met my true love in junior high and we began dating at the ripe age of 16. First boy I ever dated and we married when we got out of high school.
Two years later a lil' red headed boy stole my heart again and then a lil' blonde~headed gal came along and filled my heart up once more. Hard to believe they are all grown up with a family of their own.
Two of the sweetest grandchildren a MOMO could ask for grace our home on a weekly basis while their Moma's and Daddy's work. They give the bestest hugs and kisses.
I am truly blessed to have had 50 years of memories....Grandparents that I will always remember...Parents that loved me and encouraged me all through my life and still do! Sisters that will always be my best friends. A husband that loves me unconditionally, children that I adore as well as their spouses....and of course those lil' grandbabies.
Nieces and nephews that make me smile. Then there are cousins, aunts, and uncles that always have me remembering the good ol' days. I have a wonderful extended family that I gained when Danny and I married....I couldn't have asked for better :)
Friends near and far that have blessed my life far more than they will ever know!
Yes in a short 50 years I have made a lot of memories. Life has thrown the occasional curve ball but I can truly say I am happy and whatever days the Lord wants to give me here on this earth I'll welcome each and everyone!
Now my dear Mom baked me an apricot cobbler and a coconut cream pie with meringue so this gal is going to have a piece of both this evening and savor every bite!
