Hello everyone, time to share our thankful hearts once again. I pray you have much to be thankful for this week. Recently, there has been quite a bit of stress around the Oldham home. My health has taken a turn for the worse, I have been really sick. Of course, God is staying close by my side, keeping a watchful eye on me. I give Him much praise for that, He is such a wonderful comfort to me. I have no complaints, I always say when I am not feeling well, consider the alternative. But, actually, when I consider the alternative, woo hoo!! Heaven would be the alternative, to die is to gain for me, thank You Lord. Ok, moving along. One day last week, lovebug was at our apartment Laundromat washing his work clothes. I decided to walk up there to surprise him, he thought I was sleeping. I had been sick, so I had laid down for a little nap. Well, I was the one who was in for a big surprise. As I reached the Laundromat door, I could see there were three people in there, my lovebug, and two women. Both women were in their early 30's, very attractive, and flirting like crazy with my lovebug. Here was the conversation: You sure are cute for an older man, do you live here? Thanks for being so helpful with our laundry. I love your mustang, very cool car. Are you married? My lovebug quickly told them that yes, he was happily married, and he left. I went and sat by our apartment swimming pool, it had been a long, tiring day. I had gotten my lab results, and ultrasound results back, none of which had been any good news. Now, my lovebug is being cornered at the Laundromat by two prowling females!! My heart really began to sink, of course I began to have a talk with myself. I said things such as: Well, here I am, no hair, body that looks like an army tank, 45 years old, but look much older due to my health problems. Who would blame lovebug if he wanted to be with two younger, healthier, far more attractive women than me? He deserves better than me, I am nothing but a great big mess!! But, then a light bulb went off, and I said, YEA RIGHT!! I am his wife of almost 25 years, for better or for worse. I am who I am, by the grace of God. God created me, and that makes me valuable.I may not have the youth, hair, or looks that those two women have, but I have something of immeasurable worth that they will never have, and that is the precious gift of my lovebugs heart. Thank You Lord for my lovebug, I treasure him.
