Tuesday Oct. 18th, 2011

My sweet husband Jon doing what he loves- computers.
This is another photo taken by one of our girls. It was taken the day that we went to visit my Aunt and Uncle. Jon was scanning old family photos into my uncles computer so I would be able to have copies of them. He spent over an hour making sure I was able to get copies of every photo I wanted. Aunt Diane was awesome toward Jon. She kept saying he was a keeper. And that Jon is a handsome man.

We had fun that day. Jon was able to try tomato dumplings. He liked them pretty well I think. I know the girls all loved them. I have missed having tomato dumplings for a long time. I really loved spending time with my relatives again. Having Jon and our girls there to share that with me was the best feeling. My new family meeting my old family. It was great.

I had hoped that my little brother would be there too but that turned out not to happen. Some day, I hope to be able to catch up with him. I haven't seen him in many years. I miss just being able to talk to him like I used to.

I'm learning there are a lot of things that I missed and still miss now. I never thought how empty my life was without family in it. I always thought that I was content in my life.Yeah boy was I wrong. Sometimes there is nothing better than having someone that knows you being around. I realize now that I missed feeling like I was a part of something. We didn't have a close family growing up. I didn't grow up around my aunt and uncle really. I saw them maybe a dozen times.

Having my new family has shown me how close family should be. I can't imagine my life without Jon, mom, dad, or the girls. They all fill my life full of happiness every day. I can't remember a time when I have laughed so much. I can't remember a time when I have felt happy before.

I can honestly say that I am happy. I don't think I ever have been before meeting this wonderful family. I feel blessed, I feel happy, I feel complete. Oh my goodness, I feel stuffed. We just finished eating dinner. We had pork chops and potato salad. Between eating and these babies, there is no more room left in the stable.


Jon,

 I love you so very much. Thank you for everything you have helped me to become. You are the light at the end of my tunnel. Some days I wonder how I ever thought I was living before you came into my life. Then I realized I wasn't living, I was just existing. Since we met I am now living the life I always wanted. I'm happy, truly happy love. Life can't get much better than it has these last months.

I want you to know, you are my life. My reason for waking up everyday. You and our kids are my everything. I love you so much love.

Betty

I love you too Rose. Thank you sweetheart. It's easy to seem amazing when the person that thinks of you that way is amazing herself.
