I am so glad to be back on Open Diary that I am giddy. Giddiness at my age doesn’t happen very often! It isn’t often that a web site and the friends you have because of it are responsible for so much happiness. I couldn’t remember my password for sure and don’t have my old email address so I just rejoined. I printed all of my entries before the close so I have them.
So much has changed since I began writing on Open Diary in the 90’s. I am a newlywed once again. We won’t go into how many times I have had that title. LOL! Don and I got married on October 1, 2017, in a nursing home!Nope, neither one of us are living there yet but his only surviving aunt and my cousin as well as a friend from church were all living there and we wanted them to be able to attend our simple ceremony in the chapel. Our Sunday School class would hold services there periodically and I always loved the simple little chapel.
Don and I are both still working. We are both supposed to only work part time at the Sheriff’s Office but periodically it reverts to full time. In fact, Don worked 80 hours over the Christmas holidays, 15 hour days! It ruined our holiday but since this is my 50th year working in that environment I am used to it. Don is a former Chief of Police for our city so he knows what law enforcement entails also. He and I both work for Corrections and I also am a 911 Operator. It’s stressful but anything but boring.
I am now have 6 great grandchildren and 11 grandchildren, with 1 great and 1 grand on the way. You will hear more about them in entries to come. You can hardly wait, right?
I lost my brother in September. He had a massive stroke in 2003 and reverted to infancy. The doctor said his memory would never return.But it did.In fact he remembered things that I had forgotten. However, about 8 years later he started failing, resulting in dementia. He was 84 when he passed. I am the only one of my core family left. I hate that!!
I am a devout Christian and five family members have accepted Christ as their Savior since I did the same. These members were the ones that I felt were least likely to become devout Christians. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.
I am so anxious to see if I can find any of my former friends here so I have written enough for now.
