Happy 80th Birthday

Being orphaned many years ago, one of the spectacular things about marrying Paul is a set of really nice parents. Today, my father-in-law is 80 years of age. He's one of the special people of the world & I'm very honoured to have met him.

For those of you who are following the construction of my 'Love with a Capital L', I woke up this morning thinking about both Trevor & this project mingled together. What I worked out is that he is much like the sampler.

Trevor is patient
He is kind ... he keeps no record of wrongs.

He's like my dear old dad, really. Stanley used to say 'that's nice dear' about most things you had to tell him. My siblings & I could talk to him about most things & he genuinely listened. He wasn't the doom-monger who showed you 20 ways the project wouldn't work (and let me tell you, I've had a few really hair-brained ideas in my day!). He helped work out the logistics of many a project - & sometimes we were both surprised that it worked. LOL

Everyone needs that kind of person in their lives. Even as adults we need simple approval or encouragement at times. Trevor is one of the most supportive people I have met.

'We're gonna get married, Dad'
'That's great news, Mic!'
'We've bought a house, Dad.'
'That's wonderful!'

I hope you have someone like Trevor in your life.

Happiness & laughter always,


Love is patient, love is kind...
Love is patient, and love is kind, it is not jealous or prideful love is not rude, it is not selfish, it is never angry, it is not happy with evil, love is not happy with lies, but rejoices in the truth. Love never gives up, love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
