Gratitude Post #3

is for my best friend, my partner in life, my wonderful husband Jim!  Today is our 39th anniversary, and I can’t begin to comprehend how 39 years sped by so fast.  I mean, really, how can I be the mother of three sons all in their THIRTIES???  (And they are wonderful sons, and we now include a wonderful daughter-in-law, but that’s in another post.)  Here we are in 1971 (apparently I’d never heard of a little powder to control the shine — or maybe that’s just new-bride glow!):

And a sewing note:  I made my dress and veil, and both my attendants made their own dresses.  And for those who say, the heck with the people…what kind of car is that?  It’s Best Man Larry Sullivan’s 1967 Mercury Cougar.

Jim and I met at work waaaay back in 1969.  Two and a half years later, we married.  And they said it wouldn’t last!  Well, I don’t know if anybody actually said that, but probably somebody did!  Here we are two Christmases ago (I can tell because I was still coloring my hair!)

I’m so grateful for a wonderful husband who has put up with me lovingly supported me in whatever I’ve wanted to do (secretary, stay-at-home mom, student, court reporter, personal assistant, legal admin assistant, QUILTER!!!) these 39 years.

    Happy Anniversary to both of you.
