By the time service was over, I was feeling some hunger pangs and not being a big sweets-eater, I told Ed that I hoped they were serving some protein at this party! And they did! Thank you, Jesus!! The refreshments were wonderful! They even had a chocolate fountain, which was beautiful but I did not partake of it. No, I loaded up on the sandwiches and chips, thank you very much. *smile* Okay, I did have a piece of cake, but the sandwiches were delish.
As is pretty typical for most graduation gifts, we gave Becky money. Soooo, we got this neat idea of slipping just a one dollar bill into the money card, while folding up the "real" gift and tucking it into the bottom of the card, just letting the one dollar bill show. Think we could fool, Becky? Not for a minute! *smile* She slowly pulled out the one-dollar bill and gradually opened the card further to see if there was "more"! Still, it was funny! Charity, her mother, told us earlier that Becky was not easily fooled by things like that and she was right!!! *smile*
As we were driving to Mt. Vernon Sunday afternoon and then driving home later that night, Ed and I just enjoyed one another's company so much, sharing conversation and memories, sipping on coffee, enjoying the drive together. More than once, the thought crossed my mind that I just don't know what I would do without him. He's my best friend. I love his company. We share the best of times together and the difficult times. I love this time in our lives. I thank the Lord every day for this wonderful husband that he has given to me. We've been through so many things together. Oh, there have been times when we wondered if we WOULD make it through, but with the help of the Lord we did and it has been worth it all. We are truly enjoying the best years of our lives together. And, now, with the addition of little Jaylon, it's just gotten even better! *smile* We had little Jaylon in his Bumbi seat on the kitchen table yesterday afternoon and Ed and I sat there together reading his books to him together and showing him the pictures and then I fed him his baby food while Ed and I talked and laughed with him. Special times. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your goodness to us. Great is Thy faithfulness.
