January 2nd was Robbie’s 40th birthday! He made it very clear that he didn’t want a big production made out of it, so I didn’t. We had a big surprise 30th ten years ago, so he said he didn’t need another one. We enjoyed a New Year’s weekend of dear friends coming to town and visiting our home, and a nice dinner with friends here on the 2nd.
I am so thankful that God has given Robbie 40 years. In August of 2008, it didn’t look like he would make it to 40. I feel so blessed to have known him for 23 of those years, and been married to him for almost 19 of them. I look forward to celebrating his 80th right beside him!
