Oh, how I love my Nancy!


The 28th of July is a very good date!!

You might well ask, “Why is the 28th of July  a good date?”, so I will tell you. The reason the 28th of July is a very good date is it just happens to be my birthday!

I have celebrated 88 birthdays so far in my somewhat crazy and wild life, and to be honest with you, they just keep getting sweeter and sweeter with each passing year.

The reason my birthdays keep getting sweeter and sweeter is mostly my wife’s fault.

Yeppir, blame it all on her! And that beautiful smile of hers, too!

I mean, when Nancy smiles at me, my life, no matter how crazy things might appear at the moment, suddenly gets brighter, sweeter, and more worth the living.

To hear me talk about Nan, you might get the idea that I am in love. And if that is your conclusion - you are right!

Yep, I love my lady!

Some folks express their love with a gift such as diamonds, others with flowers, others with chocolates. But I give the only thing I can - the one thing my darling appreciates more than anything else - myself.

Each day, when I walk into her room at the nursing home, when she sees me, she bathes me with that beautiful smile, throws her hands in the air, and exclaims, “O, it's my darling!”  And my life is full.

Boy, how lucky can a guy get!

Dear Papa God, thank you for a long and good life, and a wonderful wife!  Help the men that I know to love their ladies as you love them.  Give each of us an undying and sweet love for our ladies, forever!  In Jesus' sweet name we ask it, Amen
