April 10th...a Very Special Day

I met Mr. Sweet when I was 21...

We married when I was 22 and he was 26.
We married on his birthday, April 10th
and I always accused him of choosing that date so that he would
never forget our anniversary....😁😁

I received these beautiful flowers on our anniversary this year....

This adorable bowl of beautiful red roses came from a very dear friend.

...and these were waiting for me when I awoke from an afternoon nap...
from grandgirls too sweet for words.

Our girl and boy and their families wishing me so many blessings...
grandsons calling...
grandgirls texting...

And we ALL agreed that his first birthday in HEAVEN
must have been something we can't even imagine.

We are blessed,


  1. You have a beautiful love story. The roses are precious!

  2. Happy belated anniversary. Hoping your year has helped to heal the loss of your missing half.

  3. Thinking of you sweet friend. And yes, I am sure it was a glorious celebration!

  4. BJ, I like to think Mr. Sweet had a joyous time seeing you get flowers for your Anniversary and wishes form all your family. Hugs to you sweet friend. Blessings to all of you, xoxo, Susie

  5. The flowers are spectacular and the love behind them is precious. I am grinning to think that Mr. Sweet chose his birthday to be son chose his birthday to marry, too. Ha! Obviously, Mr. Sweet believed you to be his best birthday gift ever. I hope that you enjoyed many sweet memories of the day.
