Take Time To Enjoy This Life…Family #5
We took time to plan having a family…
We met on a lovely March day. Romance, learning about each other, how we came together, repeated tumultuous testing, learning, planning, led to February vows. It was a very happy 62 + years of togetherness. Our dreams, careful plans were always interrupted by The Spirit.
We planned our first conception, enjoyed the pregnancy, I drove the three of us to the hospital, at her bedside through labor, watched our first son come outside, take breath, squirm, cry, nurse. We prayed together, loved him together.
We took time . . . time to have 3 more wonderful children, the same way, I watched each come out, held, fed, diapered them all. We took time to enjoy life, guided by The Spirit . . .
Two people, two growing careers, 15 houses, 5 states, we took time to enjoy the scenery, hold hands, plant flowers, smell the roses. Sometimes it seemed like killing snakes. It was wonderful because we did take time. Her last words . . .
“I love you, . . . Thank you..”
Nuff Said !!!
