{I Am Retired Y'all!}

  It sure is a bittersweet time but I am surely looking forward to my adventure with the Lord. I wanted to share a few pictures with my friends. I have received so many phone calls, texts, cards and gifts this week that have just brought tears and joy.  Turning in my office keys of many years was hard! But, Jeremiah 29:11 is surely reminder that God has set the plans for my life and that I will trust.  I only had the blessing of serving alongside Pastor Scott for nearly a year and I pray God's blessings upon him and his family as his journey continues. However, he is a quick learner and learned that I was the BOSS! LOL! The former pastor and his wife that hired me 22 plus years ago even tuned in to the recognition with a video. It melted my heart.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Well let me begin by saying that my last post has disappeared! YEP...just gone! I have no clue what happened. I pulled up my blog to see that my post had been removed. But, I can't thank you enough for all those that responded with prayers and well thoughts. So many of you gave me ideas and I am so glad that I wrote them all down. I am so much better and today is actually the first day that I will not take the medication so we can see how I do. First physical therapy went well. Learning so much by research and being my own health advocate. Thanks again for your support. Now onto "sweeter things" in life.  On September 23rd we celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary. On one hand that seems like forever ago but on the other hand it seems like yesterday. I just wish I had that youth of energy that I had 41 years ago! And those knees that didn't crack...and that complexion that didn't need much makeup...and that skin that didn't have so many wrinkles...
