Mickey and I decided to start off our 56th Anniversary celebration with hosting a dinner party for 9 of our friends the evening before .
The table is set
The meal consisted of: Susan - Beef Strogaoff - black & regular olives - white & red grape juice - tea - coffee
Shirley - Greek Salad
Patty - Home made yeast rolls
Dianna - Carrot cake & Lemon squares
In other words--a delicious feast prepared by ALL.
After a leisurely, wonderful meal we decided to wait until later for dessert.
(because we were all stuffed!!)
Moving to the living room we watched a Bill Cloud dvd
"Eating From The Tree Of Good And Evil"
This is an excellent teaching that Mickey & I share with everyone we can.

Gary, Shirley, & Shirley
Yes we had 2 Shirley's and 4 Smiths!!!
After the dvd we had desserts and coffee and talked and visited until about 10:30.
Thanks to these 9 for making our evening a real blessing
Saturday - October 4th
My wonderful card and Pandora charm from Mickey
Charm is a Red Heart set in silver on one side
and "love" in Red in the silver on the other side
The card reads:
Celebrating the day
I put a ring on your finger
and promised to love you
...and thanking you
for making that promise
so easy to keep
And added in his own handwriting
"I love you so much. Thank you for sticking with me for 56 yrs."
The heart charm itself.
I am a blessed woman!!
So thankful for God truly making Mickey & I "one flesh", as HIS word declares, for 56 years.
