Surprise Reception

Last night we got to our midweek meeting and things seemed per usual.  Class went well.  We had a good upbeat crowd.  We did have a couple visit with us that were some of our teens from way back, but from time to time that’s not an unusual thing.

However, things changed after the Bible study time.  We were ushered into the auditorium for a surprise reception in honor of our 25th anniversary.  Wow!  Our kids really got us this time.  My mom had prepared a cake that my aunt Linda decorated.  There were other family there too.  The church had prepared us a money tree.  The fellowship and love shared was awesome.

I am really proud of our kids.  They did great.  Tabitha, our oldest has really matured in things like this.  She is growing up to be one fine young lady.  I just want to thank Tabitha, Danielle, Britney and Brandon for being who they are.  We love you guys so much.

    Excellent! Long Beach really honored us on our 25th about 7 or 8 years ago (can’t remember?!). I really felt for a couple who had their children later in life and the kids were too young to really know how to pull anything together and no one ever let us know when their 25th was until a year or so after the fact. They really deserved to be honored, but it was too little too late. I’m glad your children did this for you.
