Never Stop Dreaming!

 It's amazing how the time flies by.
Forty one years years ago...I was walking down the the aisle.
A young bride and groom brimming full of  anticipation
 of living a life together not knowing what the future held.

Forty one years later our family has expanded.
This past week we celebrated Levi's 11th birthday.
A day trip up the new 'Sea to Sky Gondola' life in Squamish,
gave our grandsons another adventure, as they hiked, and scrambled 
through the rocks and stones while I tried to gently scramble behind them.
The trail was packed with tourists, when one of them blurted out loudly

"I didn't know that Oma's could run..."
They put me in my place.
 Who would of known that this little gal would be helping me in my kitchen.
"This is the way we wash our clothes, wash our clothes...."
She's schootching all over the place.
The laundry basket keeps her well contained.

"I didn't really like my dinner,
so I dumped it down the side of my chair and I'm proud of it."

 Who would of  known that 41 years later my husband would 
need some culinary advice on how to eat Bratwurst?
We were sitting in an outside patio in Austria and ordered our standard food.
We politely asked for cutlery.
The waitress said,
"Mr. John, let me show you how to eat Bratwurst."
She took his hand and dipped it into the mustard and horse radish
and then continued to shove his hand to his mouth.
 " Now that's how you eat Bratwurst in Austria"

 Who would of known that we would be cycling the Danube river?
One amazing accomplishment and highlight over this past year.

 "It's the dreams of our hearts that bring us 
luck and happiness along our way."

I still feel like a young bride brimmed full of excitement for the future.
I'm grateful for the life I've been given and feel blessed to share this day.

Love is patient, Love is kind.
1 Corinthians 13:4


  1. Happy Anniversary Marg and John! You just keep going like energy bunnies...I can hardly keep up
    just realizing what you are all up to. May God continue to bless you with health and joy in following Him.

  2. A very happy anniversary to the two of you. You are both a wonderful inspiration of love and commitment!!

  3. Happy Anniversary to a couple who enjoy celebrating and making memories.

  4. Keep dreaming. Keep doing. Keep celebrating each and every day. Happy 41st anniversary...and may you have many more!

  5. Oh, happy anniversary dear Marg and John. What a blessing you are to those you love and to so many others! 41 years sure hasn't slowed you two down. You are living the Dream! Little Ivy is SO cute - you must be having so much fun with her!

  6. Happy Anniversary to you and your dear husband, Marg!! We will be right behind you in a few short weeks, celebrating our 41st. I think 1973 was a very good year!

  7. Yes, on our wedding day we could never have imagined what our lives would look like decades later. It's fun to reminisce and see all the blessings God has given! Hope you had fun celebrating. Happy anniversary! (and I love how you still feel like a young bride, excited for the future : )

  8. Love your post - from learning to eat Bratwurst in Austria to a little one figuring out that we don't have to like all the food served us and what to do with it if we don't ! Love those dancing eyes!
