Ernie Ford used to sing a song called "16 Tons""
Another year older but deeper in debt. . .
Saint Peter don't you call me. . .
Yesterday was my birthday. I am another year older.
Another year older but not deeper in debt. Last year we changed our mortgage to every two weeks and shortened the length of the loan. At this time next year I hope we will be less in debt.
My birthday gift from hubby is a walking treadmill. His personal shopper got it for less money at Play It Again Sports.
Yesterday we also went to dinner with Sally and Jake at Grillsmith in Brandon. Eliza, the manager, took a picture of hubby that I am posting on the Plant City Lady and Friends LIKE page on Facebook. We loved our service and the food there. Sally and I both had a delicious salmon salad and my husband had "Pork Chop Marsala", recommended by our waiter. I embarrassed my husband when I did two raps for Eliza. He put his red napkin over his face.
We caregiver wives stick together. Earlier this month Sally had pointed out the card section at Family Christian Bookstore and hubby bought me a DaySpring card I received yesterday with Proverbs 11:10. Now this card was in a small bag that I didn't peak at, but I knew where it was. I put the bag out yesterday morning. Hubby signed it. It said,
For My Wife
Your birthday is a time to reflect
on the amazing woman God
made you to be.
Your caring heart, ready smile,
and love for those around you
make sharing life with you
With each year, I discover
a little more of who you are
and who you're becoming,
and that's a lifelong adventure
I'm thankful for.
I love you,
and thank the Lord for the
precious gift you are in my life.
Sigh! Life is such a precious gift. I love my husband even more than when I married him in 2000. We didn't know what these senior years would bring (his dementia, our car crash, my biopsy next month), but each and every day I see the LORD's sustaining hand.
