WOW!! Will wonders never cease!! Today is my husband's 65th birthday already!! How did this happen? Days just slipped by and before you know it you wake up with a 65 year old man in your bed!! WOW!!
Today is the official day for him...he was born on the original LABOR DAY!! He was small...around 5 lbs. Back then they took him into his mom but she noticed that he was turning blue. She told me a long time ago that he looked like a squirrel!! She called the nurse and they quickly took him back to the incubator!! WHEW!! So glad that they did that!! He has really outgrown that small birth weight...just like the rest of us though!!
He has been the "light" in my world for over 52 years now!! We met when we were 14 at a wedding!! Then started dating at the young age of 16....We married when we were 18 and 19!! Now all those years later here we are still together and loving every day of it too.
We are in such a minority anymore BUT this is one minority that I am so so happy to be a part of!! So many people just do not know HOW to stay married!! Hm!! Sure there were times that I KNOW he wanted out but we just stuck together. Finally the LORD came into our lives and with HIS divine help we have lasted now together all these years.
Mike works so hard to make a good living for me and earlier for the 5 of us. We have three grown good hard working children. What a blessing!!
He is still working hard and at this age this concerns me. He seems to thrive on work though. He is wonderful at what he does and very neat and precise also. He gets along with everyone. He is in a great men's group at church which I think has really helped his walk with the Lord. Men friends are important to men but most of them think that is a weakness. Too me...it is ONE of the best things that Mike has became involved in!!
I pray that Mike has a great day today!! 65!! wow!! Seems so funny sounding...I follow in about 5 months!! OH NO!!
