Honestly, I don't know where 2014 went. It just came and blasted on past me, I guess. There were some memorable things this year, and here are the highlights:
January 22: Shadow's 13th birthday (our doxie granddawg) - he'll be 14 in just a few weeks!
February 4: I had my first knee replacement surgery. OUCH. Family and friends from church visited, brought and/or cooked food, sent cards, called, and generally took care of Clark and me in an extraordinary way!
Daughter Holly's birthday!
March: Asher's fourth birthday!
April: Nothing significant
May 20: I had my second knee replacement surgery. Knowing what to expect got me through this one a lot easier. In fact, my right leg didn't swell like the left one did. See final sentence in February statement.
Annika's tenth birthday!
June: Duke's seventh birthday on the 28th!
July: Finished up physical therapy.
Clark's birthday AND my brother Steve's birthday on July 4!
Kurt and Bethany's 12th wedding anniversary!
August: Son-in-law Kurt's birthday
September: Nothing significant
October 17: the anniversary of the first time Clark and I met: 1968!
November: Son-in-law Philip's birthday, Alexa's birthday, and my birthday!
And, of course, Thanksgiving
December: Daughter Bethany's birthday!
Our anniversary on the 20th - we were married in 1970
Holly & Philip's 14th wedding anniversary!
And, of course, Christmas!
What a wonderful year it has been. We look forward to 2015.
