It has been a while since I have written. A lot of things have been going on in my life. There is one that urged me on to write again. My husband Jerry and I have just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. It seems like yesterday that I met this tall, dark-haired and handsome man. He has been the love of my life, and I thank the Lord for Him every day. It was the Lord that put us together you know. I went to a friend’s house and prayed for him to ask me out. I went by her house every day after work and we would pray. Pray because I didn’t think he would ever ask me out because he was too shy. Well after 2 weeks of praying and thanking the Lord for the answer in advance, I got a call from the switch board operator where we worked. She said if Jerry Snelling asked you out would you go out with him. I said yes I would go out with him. A few minutes later the phone rang in my office and it was Jerry. He asked me out and the prayer was answered!! Below is a photo of one of the bouquets of flowers he had delivered for our anniversary. The card below has great meaning as well. We had a baby boy. We named him Chris. When he was about 2 years old, we would ask him how much he loved us, and he would always say I love you 40 dollars. The largest thing he could think of, we have never forgotten that precious thing he said, and thru the years, we have often said, I Love You $40.00 to each other!
