50 Years

I'm having a Gold Saturday

May 2
I have been married 
50 years
Things have changed so much in these years not all good but a lot  are.
 I was turned 18 May 1st , May 2nd in 1964, I was married .
Some days it seems like I have always been married

My husband was with the military for 24 years It was a lot different then today.When he retied from that . He stared working at a bank, I was a stay at home mom most of the time  With moving I did try but it just did not work out. I had a great job with Avon in management ,but we had to move so that ended too. When he got out got of the Air Force.  I stared teaching painting, and seasonal jobs.
When he retired from that, so did I. I still do craft but at my time.
 They say 1 out of 5 marriages make it to 50 years. So we have done good, there have been days I wonder how we have done it.

We have a son and a daughter.They each have two girls.The best things from these 50 years.
This is how 50 years have gone by

For celebration we are going to go spend a couple months in Spain We where there a couple years ago and like it best places we have been.
