Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary

***Personal Note:  I have been MIA on my blog.  Sorry about that, life has had its ups and downs over the past 6 months for our family,  My Dear Brad has had pneumonia 4 times.  On hospice then off hospice, oxygen then no oxygen, antibiotics & steroids then off again – a roller coaster ride.  This journey that we are on, isn’t the one we had envisioned. With that – we know The One who holds our future and trusting our Dear Lord to guide us, as we take it one-day-at-a-time.  

In April we celebrated my Dad and Mom’s 50th Wedding Anniversary.

I made the table decorations, using Glitter It glue,
empty Republic of Tea bottles, fine and regular purple glitter mixed.

It was wonderful watching my Dad and Mom the whole evening
surrounded by family and friends; enjoying memories
and creating new ones as the evening unfolded.
God has blessed me with the love of family!
