A year ago today, Bentley had his heart surgery and came through it with flying colors. I emailed him today to let him know I remembered and was so happy that was behind him.
Today is also the 43rd wedding anniversary of my dear friend and niece by marriage and her hubby. We all graduated from high school the same year and at times, it seems like just yesterday. At others, it seems forever ago.
Especially when I look at this picture taken last year in May at a wedding we all attended. (If I posted this picture last year - don't worry about it - I'm not). This is her family - her hubby, three beautiful daughters, two son-in-laws, a granddaughter and a grandson. She finally retired earlier this year and we keep talking about getting together but so far - life has gotten in the way of that. Maybe soon we will find the time to sit down, have a glass of wine and really get caught up. In the meantime, I'm very happy for her retirement - she has been doing some fun things she had put off for long enough.
I also wanted to share a few of the pictures I.T. and Mae's grandson's wife sent us of their little girl who is 3 1/2 now. Isn't she pretty? Such a good combination of her Mom and Dad. All the young families are growing up around us. I can't believe Page started the 5th grade today. According to Leah, she was pretty happy. A picture is supposed to be coming soon. Hope the 5th grade is her best grade yet!
Boy also started Kindergarten today! I hope he had a wonderful day too. I left a message for his Mom asking about him. I'm sure he did much better than she did. :) Keith came by to see me this afternoon. It was so sweet of him to check up on me - I really appreciated the visit. Stayed home today - slept until 10:30 or so and was ready for a nap around lunch time. Hope I start feeling better soon. I've decided I've got to listen to my body this time - I've pushed against the goads for over a week and a half and feel just as bad now as when it all started. Hmmm - could I be getting a little smarter? Naaahhh - I just feel too bad to do anything else. But - tomorrow is another day and maybe it will be the beginning of me feeling better.
