Sam and I celebrated our 50 year wedding Anniversary this past weekend.  How did all of these years go by so quickly?  We have actually been together for 50 + 4 1/2 years.  Started dating our Freshman year in High School.      We married on June 16th, 1972.



 It was actually ME that asked him to be my boyfriend!!

A few days later....Wednesday, March 13th 1968, he asked me to "Go Steady."  They don't call it "going steady" 

now days!  

We have been together ever since then.  Guess this means that we are pretty crazy about each other!

Our two daughters and their families hosted a dinner for us last Wednesday evening.  It was absolutely beautiful.  Sam and I loved everything about that evening.  They really out did themselves from the restaurant, to the ambiance of the room, the flowers, the delicious meal and the gorgeous cake!  Of course, they surprised us with a card and a Gift of a trip to be taken this Fall.  

I can truly tell you that I am a very Blessed lady.  Sam is and always has been a gentleman.  He still opens the car door for me or any door that I go through.  He is a man with great integrity and always puts my interest ahead of his own.  He is a true family man that loves his family.......and ME.  He is a wonderful provider and takes good care of us.  Most of all.....He is a man of God!

He sets the standards high and he is serious in being a good role model for his grandchildren.   



We have built a beautiful life together and I look forward to spending the rest of my days with this man.  

One of my favorite songs is: "When I said I do" by: Clint Black.  


"When I said I do, I meant that I will  'till the end of all time....Be Faithful and True, devoted to you

That's what I had in mind, when I said I do.  

Truer than True you know I'll always be there for you,

That's what I had in mind when I said I do!"


Hugs to you all:
