God sure blessed me with a wonderful husband.  I adore (almost) everything about him!  I mean, no man is perfect!

He is my fixer-upper…if he can’t really “repair” it, he can sure “rig” it up.

The neighbor's limb hubby to the rescue.

He is my yard man…I help, but the guy is mighty particular about how his grass is cut and such.  When a hurricane hit us (yes, a hurricane here in south GA), he was outside soon as possible surveying the damage to his yard!

He is a good Christian man, but I do have to “remind” him every now and then that the words that just came out of his mouth might not be so pleasing to God.  

He is my total opposite…he sees the cup as half full (always!) and I have a tendency to see it as half empty (but I’m working on that).  He never gets flustered and calms me down when I’m having a hissy fit.

But one of the greatest things about him is his sense of humor and how he can come up with the craziest things to say.  But today he came up with the best one yet.  Long story short….I had sold some of my teddy bear collection on Poshmark (My Closet Link), but as I began to pack them up I couldn’t find one of them.  I kept them all in the same place so I couldn’t imagine where this one was.  Y’all I looked EVERYWHERE…I mean EVERYWHERE.  In every drawer, cabinet, closet, bin…literally every nook and corner.  I spent ALL AFTERNOON.  I never did find that bear…and I was quite upset about it.  I don’t remember doing anything with it, and I’m just flabbergasted!

At one point I really lost my cool, and the tears came.  My husband then went up in the attic with me to look…I had already looked there 4 or 5 times!  Well, we sometimes get squirrels in our attic, and without missing a beat, my hoot of a husband says…. 

“I think a squirrel got it and sold it into teddy bear sex slavery!”  Of course, that stopped the tears and I laughed…still don’t know where that bear went but I sure love my funny husband!   (And by no means, do I normally think anything to do with sex slavery is funny...I pray for these people often.)

We’ve been together since 12th grade…married almost 53 years!  I love him beyond measure and hope he’s still making me laugh for many years to come.

Other tidbits:

*My granddaughter painted this for me last year to put in my memory garden (for our daughter that we lost in 1986).  We finally got it put up this year…I love it.  The garden has a ways to go.

*Her prom was earlier this month…she melts my heart.

 *I teach GAs at my church each week.  My girls recently did a paper plate weaving project.  I did one too!  It was so much fun and the girls just loved it.  The project went along with lessons on ENDURANCE & PATIENCE๐Ÿ˜Š  I think they learned a little of both.

*Sending LOTS OF LOVE & BUNCHES OF HUGS to my friend LOIS in KS.  She’s in her 90s and was still going strong until recently she fell and fractured her pelvis.  She reads my blog so….Lois, I hope you heal quickly and your pain will be manageable.  Mind what they say in rehab…they’re gonna love you๐Ÿ˜Š

And LOVE & HUGS to all my few readers…hope all is well in your world.

  2. I think laughter is the key to love...

  3. Love the pictures and yes girl, good men are hard to come by so if we have one we best keep him. Glad I have one too! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Many times during marriage a good sense of humor is vital! Congrats on long and loving relationship. He sounds like a wonderful person. I love the throw back guys were so cute...still are! What a clever way to use a chair back and make a beautiful memorial in your garden. So sorry for your loss. Hugs from Ohio..

  5. Having a sense of humor is an amazing thing, it helps to keep people laughing and I am a big fan of laughter. Love the painted piece, if you are going to have it outside, please coat it several times with Polycrylic, it will not yellow the white and it will keep the color from fading. You might even consider coating it several times each yr. to preserve it.

  6. Praying for Lois๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ. I still read and blog when I can find a minute or two๐Ÿ˜‚. I lose things ALL the time so I can relate to missing bear. I put things in a special place and can’t find them. It annoys me and yet I still do it. Enjoy your day with your hubby, I love a good laugh and it sounds like he makes you laugh even through tears. Hugs


Please stop and "chat" with me...I love hearing what you have to say!
