Let's Grow Old Together

I woke up early this morning with too many things on my mind. I tend to do this at holiday times. When I got up, the fire was going and the house was all toasty warm. Jimmy had the fire ready and I really appreciate that! So with my coffee in my hand, I started thinking about what I am thankful for Jimmy. It seems very fitting as this is our 40th year of marriage. I found this postcard online when I was snooping around and I like it!


I am thankful that God has given us many years together. We have had that time to grow and become better partners. We have made mistakes along the way, we have faced hard times...joys and sorrows for sure! Yet we have always loved each other and here we are, still together and still having a grand time.
Becoming grandparents is a blessing and a reward and definitely a reason to be thankful~a gift for growing older.

Provide and protect should be my Jimmy's motto. He has always lived that from our very beginnings as a couple. Thank you Jimmy for taking good care of me for so long. I have a very thankful heart when I think of the past 40 years and I do hope we are granted many more so we CAN grow old together.

That was a lovely post and I hope Jimmy got to read it, Linda.

You know what? I feel the same way as you....filled with immense gratitude to God for giving my husband to me.

Lord knows we've been through the ringer together and have had many blessed years, too.

To say I am grateful doesn't cut it. My entire life has been blessed by my husband. We will celebrate 40 years in March.

I wish you mamy, many more happy years, my friend. Susan
