This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

T is for Trent

T is for Trent

This is my husband. my sweetheart my love my darling, well ok you got. We started dating August 16, 1979 the summer after my 9th grade year of high school.

We grew up together, he lived behind our land where we had horses andevery other animal you could think of. He would cut through after school in jr. high because it was such a shorter distance to get home. We went to the same dentist, same church, and we even went to the same barber. Well let me explain that last one. My brother was the one getting his hair cut. But the old man barber, well, he would always ask the girls… “you want a buzz today?” “uh, NO!” as if he was going to really give us one. He would pull out a rubber ear from a drwer and say now if you don’t sit still…. this is what happened to the last guy! Hahaha! Oh the good old days.

My husband Trent with a T had grown with me through so many things. Yes I walked across the graduation stage and down the wedding isle I like to say. Well, I kinda did. I graduated in May and married in January 8th 1983.

So, Mr. T and I have really had a lot of years under our belt already. Oh my what was in store for us. We had no idea I would end up so sick for so many years. What a man Mr. T turned out to be!! He was by my side and told me we were a team. He meant every bit of it and has been the best coach anyone could have needed during the stuff I have had to go through.

Mr. T and I had two incredible kids who are both now married and we one grandchild on the way! Yes, we are part of the rare club “childhood sweethearts marry and stay married”


I wish I had better pictures but my scanner is broken. The story is the same, Mr. T is my hero and so T is for Terrific, Temendous, Trent

thanks for your thoughtful comment. . .

what a wonderful story. . .it seems that not many marriages last that long these days!

I noticed on your profile that you have celiac disease, my sister-in-law has this. She was diagnosised about 10 years ago after many of years of wrong diagnoses! It is a challenging thing to change your lifestyle to fit your disease!

What a blessing God has given you. May your children be just as blessed in their choice of a mate.

Yes, a beautiful story indeed. I have also known my husband since I was 15 and he was 17. He was my only boyfriend and still is and he calls me his girlfriend. We raised 3 children, now 5 grown grandkids. I see love is alive and well in CA and Kentucky. Blessings for many more wonderful years to you both.

What a terrifically sweet and romantic link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "T".

Love stories like this are the 'real' ones...the slow and steady growing together over time, the trust, the steadiness.

This post made me smile.

He sounds terrific. But then I suspect so are you!

Thanks for linking.
