Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

Both the girl and the boy went on to have great lives from the middle '60's until they met in January of 2001. The boy married and had 2 children (a boy and a girl), and the girl married and had 3 sons.
Then in October of 2000, the boy interviewed for a new job near Hendersonville, TN. AND--the girl interviewed for a new job in Hendersonville, TN. (Little did they know that God was working hard at getting them together)... He took his job and began working in December. She also took her job and began working the end of December.
They met on January 7, had their first date on March 29-----and look what happened on JUNE 23, 2001.........
Last year at this time, they were on a 3 week trip out west... BUT--after evaluating that SUMMER trip, they decided to make their 'long' trips during another season. It's too darn hot and there are too many people around during the summer... SO---they will be celebrating this Anniversary here in Tennessee ---and hope to take a longer trip in September this year.
This is the story about two people who met when both of them were 59 years old... SO--anyone looking for love should never give up. It CAN happen and it DID for us. With God at the center of our lives and with lots of love for each other, this boy and this girl hope to have many, many more wonderful years together... But--since life doesn't give any guarantees, they always try to make the most out of every minute they have...
Happy 11th Anniversary to a Virginia girl and an Indiana boy who became ONE on June 23, 2001....
Have a wonderful weekend ----and you know that we will!!!!! I'll see you on Monday.
