HAPPY VALENTINES and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

I know it's a few days early for Valentines but since 3 of our favorite people also have anniversaries I'm post this today.
(picture from 2 years ago on his birthday)
FIRST, Don & Barbara, our dear friends of 36 years, celebrated their #45th yesterday, February 11th.  We love you guys and are so thankful for our long, important friendship.  We've been through the good & the bad together, travelled much of our beautiful country together and most importantly, share the Love of our Savior and Lord together.
Happy Anniversary!!

SECOND, Son Marc and daughter-in-love Deann are celebrating their FIRST, yes 1st, Anniversary today, February 12th.  It's been a difficult year for these two, as they blend two families and 5 children together.  We love you so much and wish for both of you nothing but the VERY BEST.  May this year #2 be all that you hope and dream it can be.  You are a pure joy to us, Marc, and we are so very proud of you.
THIRD, these love birds, our wonderful daughter, Suzette, and son-in-love, Dave, will celebrate their 17th Anniversary on Valentines Day.  This picture was taken just 5 days after Suzette's diagnoses of cancer.  The past 4 1/2 months have been a real testing time in their lives but they are passing this test with flying colors and we are so very proud of both of them.  We believe year #18th will be their best year ever.

We thank God for the wonderful friends and family He has blessed our lives with.

Happy Anniversaries to all the special people in your life! I can attest to a very difficult first year with blending a family. Praying for you all this coming year!

What a lovely post! Happy Anniversary to all of them and may they have many more! Blending families is not as easy as The Brady Bunch made it seem is it? That sure wasn't real life but with work and prayer I know they will figure it all out!

Wish my freezer had all those goodies in it!!! Oh, wait a minute, I'm supposed to be getting back on Weight Watchers so I guess I'd better not have them! :o)
