Over the years, my husband’s and my sleep habits have gotten off kilter to where he goes to bed so early, sometimes by 8 or 8:30, while I just don’t get tired until sometime after midnight, oft even 3 or 4 in the morning…about the time he’s getting up. I love it that he can go to sleep anywhere, anytime. I, on the other hand, lay down and close my eyes and be perfectly still for up to two hours without ever going “to sleep”. Rather than lay there wide awake, I get up and work on the computer—be it mid-day or bedtime.
Anyway, that’s all set up. Knowing this, he always lets me sleep until I wake up and as soon as I do, no matter what he’s doing, he gets up and goes to the kitchen and brings me a cup of coffee—well, lemon water first of late as he read online that it’s healthy to start every day with a cup of hot, fresh squeezed lemon water! Then he brings the coffee as soon as I down it.
We’re sixty-five now. In November, he turns sixty-six, and his little way of serving me this way is a much appreciated gesture of love…and I think very romantic.
We’ve been together since we were sixteen, so fifty years is coming up. That’s since our first date, but we were together from that day on…every day from June 24 into November when his mother made us miss a day. After dating a year, he proposed, and we married in June the next year after graduating high school! Baby next June, baby the following September. Young love is so sweet! Mature love is even sweeter! 🙂

About the book – Daughters of the Heart: God’s perfect plan is oft so hard to determine.
In his life, Henry Buckmeyer has never been so beside himself. His little girls are so young, just babies, too young. He hates the whole idea of men coming to take them away and is inclined to shoot every one of them, but praise God for a level-headed, loving wife and step-mother! She helps keep him sane amidst the female chaos. Packed with fun, romance, deception, action, heartbreak and tears, this delightful Christian novel keeps the twists and turns coming.
Gwendolyn, Cecelia, and the youngest, Bonnie, make a pact never to break their father’s heart like their big sister did. Then their determination is sorely tried when suitors show up, and he gets so pigheaded with his rules.
Will Henry survive his daughters coming of age? Will they endure and keep their promises to each other?
From one man asking to court her—who Daddy sends packing—Gwen goes to three! How can she ever decide? Cecelia knows exactly who she wants, but she’s still a year away from Daddy’s acceptable courting age. What if her beau doesn’t know or won’t wait? And Bonnie hates being the baby and wants to be grown-up more than just about anything…except her man. She is for sure and for certain in love.
Will the Buckmeyer home ever be settled and peaceful again? Will any of his daughters find true love…a man he’ll approve and to whom he can give his blessing?
