May 1 and 34 Years

Hard to believe it's May already and harder to believe that we've been married 34 years! As you can see we got roses, roses, and more roses. Thanks to Merrill who had them shipped from Ecuador for his appointment with WalMart we were the recipients of over 125 roses of a variety of colors. They are absolutely gorgeous.

34 years ago on May 1 dad and I were married in the Provo Temple at 12:00 noon. Little did we dream all that the future had in store for us. It has been a great life. There have been many, many good times and some bad times too. But they have all combined to make a wonderful life. Even the bad times have made us stronger and wiser and more humble and more dependent on Heavenly Father. I would never have guessed that we'd live in Minnesota for 23 years, in Iowa too and never, never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that Arkansas would be another home for us. And that we would really like it!

We have been blessed with 6 wonderful children, and 3 fantastic grandchildren. It has been wonderful!!

We're not sure what the future holds, but we're excited about it. Whatever it is and where ever we go it will be great as long as we have the Lord's confirmation and blessing. It has been so far!!
