54 Years Ago Today

July 1, 1957…we were married.

Remembering… it wasn’t a fancy event like most weddings today…but pretty in it’s own way. I bought  a bridal magazine, picked out a gown, and had it made by a dressmaker (cost…$40!) The reception food was prepared by us…fancy sandwiches,…… chiffon cakes made by Mom, ….strawberries from my parents’ garden, ….wedding cake baked and decorated beautifully by Mom.

The honeymoon…car trip to the Wisconsin Dells…and later a reception in the farming community where I grew up in Saskatchewan, hosted by my parents.

That was the wedding…the MARRIAGE was based on Biblical standards, standards which still hold firm today…

We are so blessed all these years later, to have my Mom and all our siblings with us…and lovely children and grandchildren…..so much to be thankful for…

…and, most of all … a patient and loving husband!!!
