Contrasts and Comparisons

Thank you all for your well-wishes. We had a wonderful date last night! We have pictures, and I had the idea of comparing our last three anniversaries - since they were each in a different state. Unfortunately I have no pictures of our anniversary in 2006. I only have a scenery picture from Florida.

The views from our homes... I am sure that opinions abound as to which view is the most beautiful, but I have to tell you - we just love each of them. Each location is gorgeous to us, all for different reasons. We have wonderful memories in each place.

Florida: 2006

New York: 2007

Montana: 2008

The Restaurants:

New York - The view was onto the Ice Rink in the Rockefeller Plaza
March 19, 2007


Montana - the view was over the Whitefish Lake
March 19, 2008

Love John's new flattop look (I guess it is new) Wonderful series of pictures - life is interesting in how it takes us places we never even knew we wanted (or could stand) to be - physically and emotionally. Bless you two -

Each place is beautiful for very different reasons. How lucky you are to have experienced them all over the past few years. You two look exactly the same this year as last.

Belated Happy Anniversary wishes to you and John. I just wanted to wish all of you a Happy Easter. Because of this special day, we know we'll be together, with Ellie greeting us, in His heaven! With blessings to everyone. I remembered on March 11th that that was the day lat year I met you and Ellie in New York City. Little did I know how I would come to know and care about you. Gerry

Sarah -
When we came to see you at the hospital in NYC last year, I came home and felt a tremendous need to plant something outside - something cheerful and vibrant and alive. So, the day after seeing you and Ellie, I planted tulips and daffodils right outside my front door. I was so thrilled today to see that the daffodils are blooming again this year. In my heart, they are my reminder of Ellie and of you and a reminder that blessings are new every morning. After a long winter, the flowers I planted for Ellie are back to say that God's goodness continues. Those little daffodils are very special to me and I wanted to be sure to let you know that I think of you everyday and thank God for that short little time I could spend with Ellie as I enjoy the memory of her in these flowers. God's mercies are new every season...indeed, every morning.
Lots of love -

Happy Anniversary (a little late) to both of you. You've had some lovely views to enjoy - but a lot of it has to do with perspective! :) I'm thankful for the godly one your family is displaying! God bless you all! Tabitha
