It's a Good Day!

Happy Anniversary to Buddy and me! It's been 15 years. I'll admit it hasn't all been wedded bliss because we've had some tough times to get through in the beginning. But I will say that our love has continued to grow every day. This man still makes me laugh and I love spending my days with him. I am so blessed to have a husband like him. We both know that it takes having Christ in our marriage to make it work. Both of us have our faults so we rely on our perfect Lord for strength to continually bind our love for each other. How blessed I am to know a love like this!

So what's with the juicer? Buddy has been wanting one of these for a long time so it's a happy anniversary gift for both of us. Maybe it'll make us a little healthier so we can have another 15 years. I gag at the thought of V8 juice but Buddy loves it. I can handle fruit juice so this'll be interesting. I'll let you know how it works and if anyone out there has one, I'd love some tips.

It's official! Rooster Cogburn is a rooster. He found his voice this morning and was crowing up a storm. Now he holds his head up a little higher and struts his stuff!

I had to snap this picture of Jess and Bridget. It's like they were saying "thanks for the hay" since, as you can see, there is absolutely no grass here. We're still praying for rain.
I want to say a big thank you to my blogger friends who have sent such comforting words about me wrecking the truck and being so stressed. I really appreciate you.
Happy Trails...


  1. To me there is nothing funnier than a young rooster learning to crow. They usually sound kinda sickly, lol! Happy Anniversary!!

  2. You're going to love your juicer. I have the same one boxed up and put away somewhere. I haven't used it in 4 years but I sure do miss it. I learned to love carrot juice, it gave me so much energy. Happy Anniversary!

  3. Happy Anniversary to you both! You're exactly right about having Christ in your marriage. People nowadays sometimes don't understand what commitment is - you commit to Christ AND to each other.

    THat rooster does look like he's proud. Look how tall he is standing there and seems all puffed up!

  4. Happy Anniversary! I love the way young roosters discover they can crow! Have a wonderful weekend, blessings,Kathleen

  5. Happy Anniversary Berte & Buddy.
    Did not realize we shared the same anniversary month. Three more weeks (26th) and we will celebrate 43 years together.
    You two are still newlyweds.
    Enjoy your special day!

  6. Happy Anniversary, Berte!
    Good luck with the juicer... I hear you can make all sorts of things with those.
    Love your pictures!

  7. Happy Anniversary to you both!!!!
