I have so many blessings that I’m thankful for. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for me. Do you know Him? I’m also so very thankful for my wonderful husband Rudy, my amazing daughter Audrey, our pets, my Mom & Dad, Mitzi & Mark, Tony & Bridget, all of my nieces and nephews and my great-nieces and nephews. My aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, online friends, blogging friends, a roof over my head, food on my tablend my list could go on and on!

How about you?

Thanks is Just Not Enough!

American soldiers sacrifice so much,
All for the freedom of our country.
Leaving their families and heading off to war,
Not knowing what the future holds.
Working day and night
Determined to stay strong.
Watching friends be killed every day
Letters from home inspiring them to keep fighting
So little is given to them
Although there is little to do,
For those who have died in war
We can still remember
Remember all the men who have died.
Remember all the battles fought
Remember all the tears families cried
Remember it was freedom the soldiers brought
To this very day soldiers are under-appreciated
Veterans Day is the day
For the dead, living, and fighting soldiers
To be remembered
Enjoy Your Freedom
God Bless Our Troops
A very special thanks to my dear husband Rudy for his service in the Navy, my uncles Joe, Hubert, Arnold, Curtis and Estes (whom I never met, he gave his life on Tuesday, July 25, 1944. He was buried during WWII in Normandy American Cemetery; Colleville-sur-Mer, France), my cousins Kevin, Brenda, Sandi, Jerry, Glen & Katie, my father-in-law Lawrence “Bolts” Kilgore, my brother-in-law Jeffrey & my nephew-in-law Keith.

I Am Blessed!

In  February of 1988 I started dating my husband Rudy! We worked at the same place and had become good friends. Playing ping pong at lunch, him sneaking notes into my coat pockets (the coast rack was outside my office in the main hall from the lab). The progression to dating was inevitable. 

April 1988

I know God brought us together. He knew what each of us needed! We eloped on Saturday, September 21, 1991! That’s right 23 years ago today! Thank you Lord!

We’ve seen our ups & downs, we’ve laugh & cried together.


We were blessed with the joy of our daughter Audrey on April 11, 1997!


I love him more each day! He understands me and my odd quirks and loves me anyway! We are the same amount of “weird”, hehe! As one of my 6 year old niece’s said in her loving way ” You guys are Mr. and  Mrs. Weird”!

So after all this time he’s still here right with me! Thank you Rudy, I love you big bunches!

With Rudy
