Over the weekend, December 13th, Tim and I celebrated our 11th Wedding Anniversary. Wow, the time has flown! I am more in love with this man then the day I married him. We have been through both high times and low times, but the one constant is the Lord Jesus. He is truly faithful!
We were also able to celebrate Tim's parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary with a party on the very same day - 12/13/14! Their actual anniversary is December 21st. What a fun celebration and testimony of God's faithfulness and rock in their marriage. I feel so blessed to be part of this family!
Tim and I were able to go out to eat the evening of our anniversary at Red Lobster. Yum! My parents (who have been married now for 43 years) took our four kids so that Tim and I could have a date night all to ourselves. We then concluded our weekend with lunch at my sister's house. Fun family time! What a rich weekend of celebration!
Once upon a time, just a few days ago, a little girl allowed her two older brothers to cut her hair. She had golden locks of curl that went past her shoulders. She decided one day that she did not want to have "purties" (a.k.a barrettes, hair elastics) in her hair anymore. Mom would daily brush her hair, if not twice a day, and with the tangles and hair accessories it was getting to be too much for this four year old. So, the five year had scissors from his kindergarten craft assignment and he suggested to the little sister that he should give her a hair cut. She kindly agreed. He nicely trimmed up the back side making it into a "bob" of some sort. Then the scissors went to the seven year old brother, who did not want to miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to get in on the hair fun. He decided that "bangs" were in order. Bangs much like his! At the completion of this hair appointment, which was given in the bathroom, they decided that mom should be surprised with this joyous event. Needless to say, the four year girl stood back apart from the brothers as they announced there was a surprise. The girl stated, "I don't think mom will like it." Mom saw. Gasps inspired. Consequences given, apologies made, and forgiveness extended. It will grow, right?
