The Mackinac Bridge
Cherries in my Grandmother's Orchard
We had the privilege of celebrating my Grandma's 90th birthday wile we were there. She is a strong woman of God and a dedicated prayer warrior for our family. Her and my Grandpa made their living by peddling fruit from their orchard. They had the most wonderful cherries, apples, pears, plums, apricots, peaches, honey, and maple syrup that would ever pass your lips. My Grandpa use to tell me that you needed rotten weather for good apples and that's why they stuck with the cold winters of Michigan. I miss my Grandpa and I know that Grandma does too. They were a great example of people sticking together through thick and thin and have passed on a legacy of long and loving marriages to my family. They were together for more than 60 years and their children have all been married for over 40 years and are going strong. None of their kids' kids have been divorced and we are all keepin' on keepin' on. My wife and I will celebrate our 13th anniversary next month.
