Each day is my favorite day. I’m so thankful to be alive and kicking. So I try to live each day to it’s fullest. In 2002 and 2004 I almost didn’t make it. Since then I’ve learned to love God, keep His commandments, and live each day to the fullest. Some days I’d rather pull the covers over my head instead of facing the challenges ahead of me. I’ll not make this a sermon.
Yesterday my husband, Jerry, and I celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. That’s a long time to be married. We have grown up together, seen a lot of hardships, lost jobs, gained jobs, seen two children married, buried one child, and watched four grandchildren grow. We’ve moved several times during our marriage, but we enjoyed each aspect of our life. It hasn’t been easy at times, but we stuck together and made it. God has been good to us.
Today starts our 56th year. I’m excited to see what it holds for us. Our oldest granddaughter graduates from college. We have a lot of books to publish this year. I have two speaking engagements so far this year and one event where I will take appointments. Our life is full. In the mix we’ll have football games to go to and band concerts to attend. There will be a special concert before our granddaughter graduates with a degree in music education. I’m looking forward to an exciting year.
Personally, I’m writing my fourth book. I hope it will be a series of several books about the goings on in Shady Valley,Tennessee. All fictional. Things have to happen in a sleepy little community that will interest the world. I’m excited about the book I’m writing and what is before us this year.
During the year there will be heartaches. Life can’t go on without them. Unexpected things will happen, but again that is life. It’s fun to look forward to each and every day. Fill it with love and laughter.
