I have many nieces and nephews and my Mother who also shared this month…

Some of my favorite Birthday gifts I remember were books I received from a sister-in-law…

Bobbsey Twins… I was probably 8 or 9… Because I was 10 when they married…

I usually give away what I paint…

I just bought myself a new Book Light…

I love to read while Bobby has his chemo… but, he likes the room dimmer when sleeping…

and my eyes are not as good to read like that…

I also like to read in bed at night…

so, this little light helps me to enjoy my books…

The books were just one thing I remember… as a favorite Birthday gift… but, I have many!

 

 

More Today Than Yesterday!

I met this guy when I was 19… He was 25

I liked him immediately…

I saw good in him…

How do you see “good”?

Kindness…

Respect…

Caring…

Family Oriented…

Honest…

Hard Working…

Dedicated…

You see and feel these qualities in people… and I saw it in him…

We married on February 1, 1969…

after knowing  each other for only 5 months

and now it has been 44 years + 10 months…

Thinking back at how young we were …

the ideas we had…

the goals we had…

the beliefs/ideals we had…

the faith we had…

the LOVE we had…

Our ideas were met and some changed…

Our goals were met and some changed…

Our ideals/beliefs stayed the same…

Our faith grew stronger…

Our Love deepened…

I feel so fortunate to have found someone who isn’t perfectme neither!…

Who sometimes drives me crazy!… I do this to him also!…

Who surprises me at times… I can do this too!…

Who shares the same interestsThat’s so neat!…

Who seems to complete me… He says I do the same with him

Wishing you a Happy Birthday Babe

I love you More Today Than Yesterday!

Our song by “The Spiral Starecase”

Came out in January 1969 right before we got married…

More Today Than Yesterday – by Spiral Starecase
I don’t remember what day it was
I didn’t notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I’ll be spending time with you

Every day’s a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I’ll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow’s date means springtime’s just a day away
Cupid, we don’t need ya now, be on your way
I thank the Lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be true
I know you feel the same way too

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But only half as much as tomorrow

Daily Prompt: S/he Said

Pause whatever you’re doing, and ask the person nearest you what they’re thinking about (call someone if you have to). Write a post based on it.

Today… everyone I talked to was talking and thinking about my niece’s 50th Birthday Party that was held last night…

Her kids… two daughters and one son… decided that they would give their Mom a big 50th Birthday Party
