Life gives us a lot to look forward to

Here I am again contemplating what lies ahead. I can't believe that it is going to be June in a couple of days, nearly half the year gone already.

This week we will celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary, believe me it has gone so fast. I can remember when I was young if someone had a 50th wedding anniversary they were really old.

Also this week our Kylie will be back from her great adventure in Europe and Switzerland especially. It will be so good to have her back on Australian soil even though we may not see her for a few weeks.

Saw a lovely movie last week called "Letters to Juliet", it was so refreshing to sit through a love story about a man and woman who meet and marry many years after they met when they were very young. Of course not a true story but one that makes you think that love is still in our lives even when we get older.

A little bit tired today

Today we went to a friends 90th birthday party. It was lovely, she is a little bit hard at remembering who we all were but when you told her who you were she seemed to remember. She is a beautiful christian lady who has served her Lord over nearly a century. She has always had a bubbly personality and always friendly. I remember when I first moved to the Sunshine Coast just on 30 years ago she was so kind to me, introducing me to people, taking me to bible study and just making sure that I was not left on my own. You remember these things about people and more so when you see them honoured in the way she was today.

We have four people honoured in the last couple of weeks for their birthdays and I guess we won't get another invite for a long time. We've had a 90th - 70th - 50th - 40th so feel very social. Shows you how old you are getting when your friends are getting older too.

I am tired tonight but happy that we were included in the party today.
