BLOG your BLESSING 11-25-07

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

1) It is sometimes just so hard to decide which blessing to blog about. Let me start with the fact that we are having drizzling rain today. We are in drought conditions and any amount of rain is good.

2) Saw my brother and his wife briefly at the class reunion, we had and have different friends so we did not hang together.

3) I was totally surprised at what someone said to me at the reunion. It was very nice and thoughtful but because of the promise I made, I cannot share it.  If you are reading this:  Thank you so much, I really appreciate what you said!!

4) Seeing friends that I had not seen in years. Having an understanding husband whose attitude was not jealously and this allowed me to roam, speak and hug whomever I wanted in the expression of ‘I am glad to see you’.

5) Looking forward to my surgery.

6) The list could go on and on, but I will stop for today.

Visit others who have posted their blessings.

dscf0503.JPGThis is the only picture that I had taken during the reunion. (click on to enlarge)  I am the gray headed one. My class had poor participation in the activities. Only 4 of us were at the multi-class function in the afternoon and only 8 at the dance. We originally had 32 classmates, now 3 of those are deceased.

I enjoyed seeing the friends that I had in classes above and below me. It was fun trying to figure out who such and such was. One of the girls I had not seen since she graduated in 1964, I knew the maiden name but called her by her sister’s name. Another I had not seen since 1963 and I knew her. Both had changed, but the face was enough the same to know who they were.

A younger classmate that I had study hall with just kept saying my name over a few times with unbelief in her voice and then she said “your hair, your hair, your hair is so pretty”. (Years ago my hair was very dark, almost black.)

I felt sorry for my husband. He knew only a couple of my classmates.

Another neat thing was a former student that graduated 15 years before I did and now attends the church I grew up in was there. I was not expecting to see her and neither she me. We only know each other because of church attendance.

My husband and I looked over my 1965 annual and did a comparison of those from my class we saw last night.
