1. 45 years with that guy with the big brown eyes I first saw when I was 17;
2. 24 years as a stay-at-home mom with the 3 gifts God gave us;
3. 21 years as a student and a pastor (who, me??);
4. 20 years as a grandmother, now to 8 unique & remarkable people;
5. 2 weeks by the beach, a retirement gift from that brown-eyed guy;
6. sunlight on the window seat as I gently move back into real time, real life;
7. the goodness of God seen in the most extraordinary of ordinaries every single day.
