~~What A Difference You've Made In My Life~~

What a difference you've made in my life
What a difference you've made in my life..
You're my sunshine day and night,
What a difference you've made in my life.
31 years ago we said I do...With your love of planes we ventured off into the wilds of the skies and new adventures.
Through the cockpit of the plane you showed me a whole new world.
The first 5 years of marriage were spent with you driving over the road.
We visited Cypress Gardens in Florida during a layover.

From driving over the road we went into the dozer and loader business. Oh how you loved pushing dirt.
Always the helpful husband.. :-))
And the romantic... ;-))

You've always loved having the grand kids around.
And having birthday gifts.

Always so appreciative.
You've made my whole life living with your smile..
From our very first Christmas..
Flying right into ....
This Christmas..
We've taken this ride together with our family around us.
Our lives have brought many changes over the course of these past 31 years. A lot of ups and downs. More joys than sorrows.. I wouldn't change a thing and would do it all over again.. Happy 31ST Anniversary Darling. I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow..

I wouldn't have missed it for the world
Wouldn't have missed loving you
You've made my whole life worth while with your smile
I wouldn't trade one memory
Cause you mean too much to me...
I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
I love you darling
hugs ~lynne~

Oh Lynne sweetie...
What a wonderful honor of love to your sweet husband and the beautiful vows you have shared all of these years. I love this post. The pictures remind me so much of the years my DH and I have had. The clothing especially. DH and I will be celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary and 35th year together in January. Isn't love grand?

Thank you for sharing this morning. Your pictures are just beautiful. What a lovely couple you to make. Happy Anniversary to both of you. Here is a toast to the next 31 years.

Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Beautiful tribute! Did I see a picture of you on this Christmas? We'll soon be celebrating out 28th anniversary so this all seems so familiar! The picture on the couch is a little frisky! I enjoyed your trip down memory lane and it was fun to get to see your husband a little bit more and put a face to his name! Happy anniversary dear friend!

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Have a wonderful Anniversary Lynn, your photos are great! They are filled with love. Our 37th was yesterday.
Blessings for the New Year,

Lynne you have me with tears streaming down my cheeks right now. You and Mr P are such wonderful people and it shows in every beautiful photo.

Now this is truly a love filled post!!

Tardevil said...

Oh Lynne, you made me cry again! Please stop doing that. What a sweet post. I do hope that you will have a happy anniversary. You look hot in your pictures (and I'm not the slightest bit gay! LOL!) I saw on your post on Lynette's that your hubby isn't doing well. I'm so sorry for that. I know that must be a devastating disease. I read more about it recently and didn't realize how brutal it is. I do hope you will make it to Biltmore one day. It is always gorgeous, no matter the time of year! Wishing you a happy New Year! I'm off to the beach for a few days of r & r. Will catch up w/ you in 2010!
P.S. Any chance you know a man named Bobby Cox from NC? He is a cousin of mine that has been going to air shows for as long as I can remember.

Lynne, I'm so sorry. My mother is getting worse but her physical health is getting better. I ask mom if she knows who I am and she always says yes but then when I ask her what my name is, she just stares at me. I'm so sorry. Life sure can be hard. It's snowing here now......darn.... take care and I to wish you and your family very Happy New Years..Hugs Pat
