Love at 80

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

It has been some time since I offered a blog, but could not pass up the opportunity given me on this past Sunday. It was the first birthday of Sloan, my GGD. It was a perfect day, all present enjoyed themselves immensely, and we all had a blast. Good food, lots of cute decorations, and wonderful cake. There was a small one for Sloan and she sure devoured some ot it.

Is it possible to find love at 80 - I will turn 80 in July and yes, I found love - I did not think I could love anyone so much - but Sloan proved me wrong - she is the entire love of my life.

    Oh Jean, how Sloan has grown! She is such a beauty too! Her great grandmother is a beautiful person also. I am glad God blessed you with little Sloan.

When my husband and I lost our almost 15 year old daughter in 1993, it was very hard for both of us but he kept everything inside and was so down for a long, long time. I was so worried about him, then God blessed us with our granddaughter in October of 1999. The darkness left his eyes and he got the gleam in them that he hadn't had in six long years. I can certainly understand love God sends to us in ways that we need.

Thank you so much for the picture. I loved reading your blog. Hugs, Shirley
