A Legacy

It's Thankful Thursday and I can't say enough how very thankful I am for my brother and his wife, the sister of my heart.  This photo was taken almost 50 years ago; they are coming up on their anniversary on Feb. 3rd.  Their steadfast love has been such a testimony to our family; first to me during the early years of marriage and then to our two daughters and their hubbies as well as to our grands.  WE are so blessed to have them as family!  In looking at the photos recently that Sue has emailed me, I suddenly realized how much my brother and I look alike.  I had heard it from others before, but didn't really see the resemblance-but now I do.  What makes this milestone anniversary such an exciting event and celebration is that they are coming to Colorado to have a family celebration and to renew their vows.  Anytime they come here the whole family is thrilled and we love carving out time for spending with them, but this time will be even more special.  Carrie's husband will be doing the honor of officiating the vow renewal.  We have hired a professional photographer to take photos of the special time.  Many of you know that Susan and I are so very close~she's mentored me in hospitality over the years, spoiled me when she should have slapped me-when I was young and immature and just been the best sister I could ever have.  What can I say about my big brother-words can not contain the emotions and love I feel for him; he's given the family so very much.  I can't begin to imagine life without them; just wish they lived closer, though it does make for fun trips going to see them.
May your day be filled with joy and love,


  1. You are such a wonderful sister too. That will be one celebration of great joy for the whole family. Happy Anniversary to your brother and his wife.

  3. How special to be apart of their lives! I hope all have safe travels and that this event is blessed! You will have to post photos! Enjoy the time you have with them!

  4. Noreen, What a beautiful couple. It is so special to be renewing their vows. Is it great that they are setting a wonderful example to younger couples.
