One year ago, my Beloved surprised me with a weekend trip to Portland Oregon to see the Nutcracker Ballet. One of my all time favorite start-the-holiday-Traditions.
We met up with his Family for Birthday Brunch Columbia River Salty’s, a visit from Santa & the now (in)famous Chocolate Fountain. If you’ve never been to Salty’s please do give it a try (make your reservations early!) their Sunday Brunch is to d-i-e. The Holiday Season they decorate with, well, appropriately enough, NutCrackers, galore!
This year we were joined at the Ballet by his lovely daughter, her husband (who happen to be expecting the first Grandchild!!), his Mother, her boyfriend for The Nutcracker. (the judge & jury remain out if we’ll repeat (the napping in the first act) next year which I have on great authority S-O-M-E people might have done. Agian, Just sayin’. No it probably wasn’t me, caught snoozin’, why do you ask?)
Because his birthday is near we celebrated then, & we might be celebrating right about now.
Just the Two Of Us.
Today is a Beautiful Day. Happy Birthday to YOU! Mr Rod, Love Sassy.
Merry Christmas from Us to you!
Romans 8:28 that all things work together for good to those who love God, who; or that in all things God works together with those who love him to bring about what is good—with those who are called according to His purposes.
God is Good in so many ways. Someday I’ll tell you the story. About today. Someday.
God in HIS goodness redeems all things from mourning to the Joyful Oil of Gladness. A divine exchange for One Woman,

Indeed. Time does fly.
