Turn off my player on the right further down & play this video.
Today Rich &  I  celebrate 15 years of marriage.
Our girls taped this song, & would make us breakfast
& serve it in bed with this song PLAYING.
Oh they were SWEET.

I'll be back with more ..of our story & pictures 
maybe this weekend.

Till then I'll be watching movies & soaking up
some sun through the window.

Celebrate Life, Share your Joy of the Day with us.

My joys today

snow that looked like mica in the sun this morning,
dark chocolate Dove Promises,

I'm resting .  I'll be back..and for now

Rich will take GOOD care of me.
lovingly, Deena


  1. Well Deena and Rich, please let me be the first to wish you both the most blessed and happy anniversary -- this is one that will be with you in memory, different from some of the others you've shared, but wonderful because of how you are holding to one another during a hard challenge in your life -- but your love and your faith are basking in this opportunity to grow and shine. And I raise my glass to you that you celebrate many, many more wonderful anniversaries together!!

    I also think you make "pretties" (what a beautiful award this is!) -- on each of your blogs and wherever you go in life. So I thank you from the very bottom of my heart for passing this on to me as well. That it comes from you means so much.

    Enjoy your day with Rich!!

  2. What a fabulous day for a celebration! When we take our vows, we never stop to think about the "poorer", or "the sickness", but it gives true testament to the strength of our love when those surface. I am so happy to see you both are committed to each other through the hard times!

    Thank you for the "Pretties" award, and I too think you create pretties! Toodles...

  3. Good Morning Deena,
    "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DEENA & RICH, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU"!!!! I do hope that you both have a great day together and I know that Rich has something special planned. I will be back later to read your story. I wanted to let you know that the graphics didn't come thru in the email you sent me. "CONGRATULATION'S" on your Pretties Award. You do deserve it as you are very creative. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love, Hugs, and Prayers,
    Karen H.

  28. Happy Anniversay Deena. I know that your husband will make this day special and that you probably will plan to do something special when you are up and about. I check on your blog every day to see how you are doing. I had the same chemo you are getting and I can tell you that every treatment the 3 - 6th days for me were the worst for total exhaustion. Even that doesn't describe it well, but I am sure you know. Anyways, almost always, the day to the week after the treatment, I started to feel more and more "like me"! Then you will have a couple of good weeks again. And boy, did I ENJOY those good weeks! Thinking of Valentine's Day last year, I had just got my 3rd dose. So...this year is a different story! You are doing great because even by going on your blog is wonderful! Hang in there...a few more days and then the good days are here!

  29. Got my glass raised, happy Anniversary to you both and many happy returns!

  30. What a sweet song! Happy anniversary! Snuggle up you lovebirds and enjoy being together. Get lots of rest....we'll be here praying for you.


  31. Happy Anniversary dear one and many more. Peace
