It's Our Anniversary.....


Today Honey and I celebrate thirty-five years of marriage. It seems like only yesterday when we first met. I still remember the first time I saw him, a somewhat shy little sailor not long out of high school who had only been in the service a little over a year and very long way from home. My family fell in love with him and we fell in love with one another. That has been more than thirty five years ago! He is a wonderful man, so kind and gentle, a rare gift a true treasure. I still get butterflies when I think about him and spend my day anticipating our coming together again. Happy Anniversary Honey.

If I could reach up and hold
a star for every time you've made me smile,
the entire evening sky would be in the palm
of my hand.

Honey and I have plans for a restful and beautiful day today. And I must say it is absolutely lovely outdoors. Each of you enjoy a wonderful Sunday and a fabulous coming week!:o)

Smiles...

Beverly
