54 years & counting...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 12 September 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Yes, time flies when you're creating a wonderful life. We're so grateful for the privilege
of having had all these years and experiences together ... and we thank God daily!

Clockwise from top: sailing our boat in CT; Truro, Cape Cod; previous home before downsizing;
in David's memory, 2008; family reunion 2005; a cold Jan. in FL, 2012.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

tyan from Singapore, Singapore

Wow.54 is such an astronomical number to me when it comes to counting years of marriage!! I see the picture of your three children when they were little,and i think about my own little kids now, it just feels so surreal yet comforting that you've been where I am and you are cheering me on,and i know you will understand and empathize all that I go through as a mother and wife. Happy 54!! And many more blissful years to come!!♥♥
