Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Happy Anniversary 40th Edition

I was nineteen, he was an older man of twenty five when we married.

Boy, did we ever have a lot to learn.

As in all marriages there have been ups and downs.

The last few years it's been definitely up.

We've had four great kids and now eight fabulous grandkids.

We've been so blessed.

Happy Anniversary Honey!
