Hello and Welcome to a new follower - Joyce. Thanks for becoming a follower & visiting.

I was going to post this yesterday, but didn't want to cause more confusion on the commenting for blog candy thing, so this will be a scheduled post - to show up after all the qualifying candy comments are counted.

I wanted to share some of the beautiful cards we've received (and one from DH which made me get a bit misty-eyed).

If you click to enlarge I think the sentiment will be readable. He's not one to say a lot of 'mushy things', but this sort of 'got to me', if you know what I mean. So many of our contemporaries have lost their life partner before this milestone, so we feel especially thankful and blessed to still be with each other. And able to enjoy life together. I'll share the inside part as well.

Now for the card from our daughter - who also doesn't say a lot of sentimental things either.

Here's 2 more gorgeous handmade cards we received
Brenda's card

Bonnie's card

So thank you to each of you that thought of us with such kindness today. Made it all the more special to us. Hugs, and also thanks for celebrating with us.


  1. Beautiful cards Mary - hope you have many more to celebrate!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Beautiful cards Mary and sometimes for some it is easier to say it in a card even though they think it every day. Take care x Susan x

  3. Awww, I love the card Joe and your daughter gave you Mary! Joe did good my friend, it made me misty eyed too! As did your daughter's card-I think both cards summed it up perfectly cause I do think you and Joe were a fine example of a loving marriage to your daughter. I also love that Joe's card said how lucky that you are still around to get to this point in your marriage. I think it is so amazing whenever I hear of couples celebrating their 50 and 50+ anniversaries!!! I also love the wedding cake card-what a fabulous card!! Hugs to you my friend! Here's to more years of wedded bliss for you and Joe!!!

  4. Beautiful cards there Mary. You are truly blessed.

  5. Oh wonderful, wonderful, Mary how precious is that! Shaz in oz.x

  6. Happy Belated Anniversary on the actual date, Mary and Joe! I'm sorry I didn't stop by on Friday with my wishes. Thank you for sharing the wonderful cards, Mary. It is truly an incredible milestone and a testament to your love!!

  7. Belated I am, sorry. A very beautiful assortment of cards. I do not wish you another 50 but do wish you many more xxx
