After an extended leave during which time I occasionally posted to let you all know that I was living, I’m now back to share some big news. Let me give you a quick run down:

  1. Alyssa is very happy and healthy.

  1. I am employed albeit under employed, but I’m grateful nonetheless.

  1. Turtle is thriving and still doing his normal tricks of greeting me when I come home, reading books and dancing with me and Bella.

  1. Mom has been working on Christmas presents all year and is getting excited because it is just around the corner. We are all excited too because we know she has once again made us each an afghan and we can’t wait to see what Mom came up with this year.

So that’s the low down, but I left one thing out.

“And we are put on this earth a little space that we might learn to bear the beams of love.”
~ William Blake ~

You all know how much I love my family and friends. Most especially how much I love my daughter.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
~ Maya Angelou ~


Hope is related to faith and you all know that I’m not good at either hoping or having faith, but God forgives the weakness in me apparently. I’m very blessed.

What exactly did I leave out?

I left out November 25, 2015.

The day before Thanksgiving.

I’m getting married.

Yes, you read that correctly. In less than 16 days I am getting married. We both are very in love, happy, and thankful to share the rest of our lives with each other.

I’m sure you want more details and pictures, but that will have to wait until the next post!

I know…I always keep you hanging! LOL

Congratulations, I am so happy for you. I saw a pic recently of an 80 year old lady in a wheelchair and her fella sitting in his walker getting married. . .hope for me yet . . not that old, but. . .there’s the hope! <3


25 Susanne November 10, 2015 at 7:15 am


Wow, wow, wow! To say I’m surprised in an understatement. For you, who have shared every detail of your life with us in words and photos throughout the years, to suddenly make this announcement is thrilling and shocking (in a good way). I was sure you were going to introduce us to your Prince Charming, but we’re far past the fairy godmother, the ball and finding that the glass slipper does indeed belong to you. I’m still taken a back, but I wish for both you and Brent, the very happiest of every afters.


26 Donna November 10, 2015 at 7:31 am

Congrats on the upcoming marriage!


27 Kristi November 10, 2015 at 7:47 am

Wow! I am so happy for you. Wishing you all the best, woman.


28 Marlene November 10, 2015 at 8:26 am

Congratulations! I’m so happy for you both!!!


29 Kenny Sellards November 10, 2015 at 8:55 am

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! *SuperMegaHugs* Awesome news Sherry! 🙂 <3 Here's to wishing the two of you many blessed years! 🙂 So happy for you!


30 Val November 10, 2015 at 8:57 am

!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you!!!! Congratulations!!!!


31 Linda Kish November 10, 2015 at 10:58 am

Congratulations! I’m so happy for you even though we’ve only met here.


32 katlupe November 10, 2015 at 1:17 pm

I kind of suspected when you said you had wonderful news. What kind of news could be wonderful? Why being in love of course! Secretly, I knew you wouldn’t be free too long… are way too beautiful, intelligent, exciting and a great cook too (very important), to not attract the men’s attention. I hope you will be very happy with Brent and this will be the romance of your life! My best to you, and tell Brent, he’s won the best there is.

Love you,


33 Arthur Hall November 10, 2015 at 3:38 pm

I wish you every happiness. May it never end.


34 Katherines Corner November 10, 2015 at 10:57 pm

Squeal! I’m so incredibly, deeply and crazy happy for you!!! xoxoxo


35 Carla Burke November 12, 2015 at 7:48 pm

36 Annie November 12, 2015 at 9:57 pm

How WONDERFUL!!! Congratulations to you both!


37 Lori Cooney November 12, 2015 at 10:26 pm

I am SO happy for you my friend. I wish you both much happiness.
