Gmail on the blink

For a number of days now, my gmail has been acting up. So I gave up writing a few posts. Since I managed to get in today, I thought I'd just kind of sum up some events lately. I didn't get to go diving last weekend. When I woke up Saturday morning, my neck and shoulders were hurting. I was going to just stay home and lay down, but some friends were scheduled to go diving with us. One would be diving and the other would be left on shore, so I thought I'd hang out on the beach with Amanda. But Saturday morning, Inga and Amanda didn't show up, but Zandra did. So I decided since I was already dressed to go to the beach, I would just ride along and sit out on the beach while Harry and Zandra went for a dive. I figured my neck would hurt at home as much as at the beach anyway. I spent most of the rest of the weekend laying down, reading a good book.


April 2nd was my bosses' 76th birthday. Here is a picture of the staff with Dave on his birthday. Harry and I went to a birthday dinner for him later that evening. It was a beautiful dinner held at the Aqua Resort. We spent the night laughing and talking. It was a very nice evening.



You can see our new uniforms in this picture. Light blue tops with gray jackets and skirts. I don't think the guys have jackets. I'm not a real polyester fan, but these are better than the ones ordered in previous years.


Today is April 4. On this day many many years ago, Harry and I started dating. Yep, way back in High School. We have shared so much history - love, laughter, tears, parenting, friendship. We supported each other through hard times, and each of us losing a parent. We have spent our last 12 years here on Saipan, working and raising our children. The kids are grown now, each pursuing their own lives, but still sharing themselves with us as much as possible. During our last trip to Bali, I had alot of time to reflect on our history together. I am thankful that God brought us together. I am thankful for the man that Harry is and for all of the years we've shared life together. I'm thankful for Josh and Sarah, whose lives God blessed us both with. They are wonderful people. So today, April 4, I am thankful that my journey of life has been shared with Harry. And I look forward to all our future holds together.

Here is an old picture of us, when Josh was only about 6 months old, I think. What's that expression? "We've come a long way, baby!"
