Today is also the day my grandparents were married. Mike & I were married on what would have been their 50th wedding anniversary. We lost my grandpa back in 1997 & mama passed away on February 20th of this year, so she's been on my mind a lot lately. They were not wealthy people (papa was a coal miner), but they had a strong & enduring love that is such an inspiration to me.
And another reason this day is important...it's the day my niece Ally was born. What a great anniversary present she was. She is such a sweetheart & has a heart of gold. I call her an old soul because it just seems to suit her. She's like my very own mini-me. We love all the same things & always have a great time together.
So in honor of this special day, I'm just going to post a few favorite pictures. And then we're on our way to my mom's for a pot roast dinner - it's mine & Ally's favorite meal. Thanks Mom!
And thanks to God for the gift of family.
