Another Year So Soon!?!

Sunday, July 22, 2012

It is hard to believe that another year has past...I will be 81 tomorrow and Sloan is now 2 1/2. We have both had a tremendous year and as I grow older, I know how each year Sloan will be hoping to grow up too.

Today, my family celebrated my 81st year and we had such a great day together. If the Lord wishes, I shall live to see my 82nd and give thanks for the time He has given me. Summer time is a great time to celebrate a birthday as you can get outside and cook on the grill which is what we did.

On Thursday, I will go to the hair salon where my DGD works and get my hair done. Grandson gave me an Amazon Card and everyone knows how much I love to read. I was blessed a couple of years ago with my daughter giving me a Kindle, so they all know what I love.

Thank you Lord for any amount of years you have alloted me and for my precious family.

    Dear Jean,
Just found this blog and wanted to say that your words were expressed so beautifully and really the way we all feel now that we are over 80...Each day is precious, and we want to make every one count!
Do not be overwhelmed by the calendar...You write so well that we would be truly sad
should you decide not to stop in for a chat once in a while..I just wanted you to know....
Love, Doris emoticon
