    The Stages of Life

    As I am in the Winter of my life, there are things that I see that really make an impression on me and touch my heart. Someone sent this to me in an e-mail and I cried when I saw it. I just wanted to share it with my quilting family. I hope it touches you like it did me.

    I met my DH when I was 15. We are now in our 50's this could be us. Don't really care for the last two pictures though. Hopefully it is a long way off....
    may you be in heaven before the devil knows your dead!

    You know, my DH and I have only been married for 8 years, but we were high school sweethearts, so I think that is why this touched me so much.

    Now 50+ years later

    We are now in the 4th picture. It would be fine with me if we just skip the 5th picture and go right to the 6th.

    Thank you for sharing. My first thought was it would be beautiful out of fabric. Hope someone makes it one day and we can see a picture.

    Although it is a long story, I will try to briefly tell you. I was 3 months older than Scott so I graduated in 1960 and Scott would have graduated in 1961. (He quit 3 months before graduation). I went into the working world and met a man and thought a school boy was to immature for me. I married and then he married a year later. We both had 2 boys and a girl. After being apart for 45 years, he hired a company to find me and we were both single. He lived in N. Carolina and I in Alabama. Our school was in Florida. He moved to Alabama and our life has been fabulous ever since. He is a retired Nuclear Engineer and I am still working for Wal Mart after being in restaurant business most of my life. GOD blessed us when he found me. Thanks for asking.

    Those pictures are so true to life. My DH of 44 years passed away of Feb. 7, 2013. He had been suffering so long with pancreatic cancer. I miss him so much that words cannot describe the loss. I know his pain is gone now and one day I will join him.

    Circle of Life.

    Events can change in a day that can cheat of us of all the stages of life. Be in the present, be thankful for the day and pray, hope for the opportunity to have those tomorrows.

    Very touching scenes. Reminds me of my parents who passed away only 28 days apart after over 60 years of marriage. As they are buried in a national cemetery, they even share a headstone. I hope to be so blessed.

    Ditto what ccthomas says.
    Life is too short not to count each and everyday as a blessing.

    Met my DH at 15 too! High school sweethearts, married 42 years now. DH had stroke at 55 years young but is still with me 5 years later for which I am thankful. Never think you have forever because your forever may be up tomorrow.
