K for F D Kilday.

Fay Diane Kilday.  

This delightful poem from F.D. Kilday , I would like to dedicate to my darling husband Ian....

Because of you,

 My world is a much nicer place, Because of you

 I know what it means to love


 I have faith in the human race.

 Because of you,

 I know what it means to give unselfishly.

 Because of you,

 I believe in magic and mystery

 and worlds unseen.  

 Because of you,

Ian showing one of  his special Birthday beers..Cheers, Sante, Braust !

As most of my friends on ABCW know that Ian will be having a tripple by-pass vi' open heart surgery within 4-5 weeks
.So please join me in prayers and special thoughts for a good recovery.
 I know we are both in our early 70's but there is so much more we want to do. Particularly, to spend valuable time with our beloved families, they are everything to us.
Our first born grandchild Molly celebrates her 13th birthday today...
A teenager at last..

She is a lovely girl, kind loving and does very well at her school... Keep up the good work darling Molls, we are so proud of

20-J = Joop

 The challenging letter of this week is J and I've chosen for the name Joop 

This post is an introduction to all of you...
meet my husband, Johannes Wilhelmus Antonius, called in short: Joop
(This photo is taken on June 4th 2016, on Joops' 59th birthday)

We met on Sunday May 15th 1977 and became friends, part of a larger group with no couples in it at that time. Due to an accident on 28th of October 1979 I broke my back and landed in hospital for almost a year. He and (just) one other friend (who died 29th of december 2015 at the age of 58 due to cancer after her husband died in 2000 at the age of 54 due to cancer also. She left behind 4 young childeren, the youngest one was just 5 months old at the time her husband died) stayed at my side.

8th of June 1980 we became officially a couple. On the 25th of December 1980 we got engaged and on the 28th of April 1983 we started living together. On the 9th of December 1983 we got married. On the 10th of January 1985 we became parents of our daughter and she became a sister on 29th of November 1990 when her brother was born. On 13th of March 2013 we became grandparents.

We have survived lots of anguish which almost drove us apart but we wouldn't give in so we fought for our marriage, ourselves and our "significant other" and we succeeded!

Still going strong together and with full intent to keep it that way!

 Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / - week
