OOOPS, I Did It Again.....

After a long hard day of toil my husband and I turned in for the night. A grateful sigh escaped my lips as my head hit my soft down filled pillow. Good nights and I love yous were exchanged and then it was off to slumber.

From the edge of a dream I was startled awake by my husband bolting out of bed, thumping open the bedroom door, flipping on the living room light. I raised up on my elbows frowning at the strange noises emanating from the next room. I heard drawers being opened, rustling of papers, then the slide and slam of each drawer only to hear the process began again. Finally after the fourth drawer I heard a soft, "Aha!"

I flopped back down thankful that whatever it was he was searching for was found and that it was not an intruder. Suddenly I am blinded by the overhead light being flicked on. I was about ready to snap and complain when I caught a glimpse of his face. He stood in the doorway grinning like a Cheshire cat waving a piece of paper pinched between his thumb and finger. I managed a civil, "What?" To which he replied, "Happy Anniversary!" The paper was a beautiful copy of our marriage certificate that I had done in calligraphy and intended to frame. I had put it in one of the sofa table drawers so it would not get marred until I had it framed.

He leaped across the room and pounced on the bed almost bouncing me off as we both laughed at his sing song, "I remembered, you did not!" How could we have totally forgotten our 15Th Wedding Anniversary? Well, how could I have forgotten, he did remember somewhere around the stroke of midnight. We still laugh about the time we forgot our Anniversary.
Well, I did it again, only this time it was my one year blog-aversary! That's right, it slipped on by unnoticed by me until yesterday. My very first post was on August 16, 2007. It passed by quietly while I was on my blogging break, actually I have a confession to make, I thought I was at the end of August. So with that in mind I think a celebration of some sort is called for. How about a give away?

Let me stew on this a day or two and then I will announce the prize. The above wedding image is from my personal collection, feel free to copy it and use it in any way you wish. In the meantime, I hope you will celebrate this day for the gift that it is, for no special reason, just because! I wish you a blessed and happy day. May it be filled with joy that is uncontainable, smiles and laughter, health and happiness, and a little something unexpected!

Miss Sandy

What a funny story! I guess it's good you both were kind of in the same boat. No hard feelings that way.

Happy Blog anniversary! I didn't know I was supposed to celebrate so I've missed mine several times over. Oh well, enjoy yours.

I just stumbled into your lovely blog. In time to wish you a *Happy Blog Birthday*! You've got a poetic style of writing, even when you were a little fearful of an intruder. It read so eloquently. I'll enjoy reading your future post towards your next B-Day celebration!

Sandy, thanks so much for sharing in my comments. I love your idea about the sharpie on the stones. I might have to use that one too as a tool to minister to others. Thanks for sharing your insights into that special scripture as well.

Yes, you may add me to your blogroll. I'd feel honored. So nice to know another kindred spirit!

Love this music on your blog too!

hahahhah... that was funny! Sounds like something my husband might do.... although he usually remembers before I do..... but the fun angle of it was so entertaining.... I can just see him pouncing on the bed with a big grin.... lol.....awwww, so cute..... ....I love it.

So sorry to read about young Angela... just not right ... I have a little girl friend..... almost the same age... who has liver disease and has been suffering with serious symptoms for ages........ cannot go out or be around other kids in case of infection.... so not right for a child to go through .... she is on a transplant list of all things....so much agony for all.....
