Alamosa high different ways to make money school class of 1960, alamosa, co

Clearly, those two radiate a happiness that moves independent observers to different ways to make money "pay tribute" to them as a couple. Wow. And in the meantime, donald and jana have come up with two additions: a great capsule of wisdom (in a short video) on what makes a great marriage, plus a rollicking story, which I’m saving for the end. In the meantime, read on for more thoughts from donald in addition to different ways to make money those above.

I met johanna (jana) clark while she was going to school in greeley, colorado, and I was at adams state. Jana graduated from delta HS, delta, CO in the class of 1961. One of her classmates, nan adams, was attending adams state and decided that jana and I different ways to make money would make a great couple, so arranged for us to meet when we were on different ways to make money a trip to denver and then greeley. For me, it was love at first sight. Not so much for jana. Fortunately, she finally decided I wasn’t such a bad guy after all.

So, what do two people do that are going to different different ways to make money schools 300 miles apart with limited time and financial resources? We wrote letters, not little one-page things once a week but seven- or eight-page letters, one or more times a day. Talk about writers’ cramps, lol. The first two years we saw each other in person different ways to make money only a few times, so the letters were our venue to get to know different ways to make money each other. It worked well for us, we think.

We married in august of 1963, and jana transferred to adams state. We graduated in 19 65 and moved to seattle, WA area, jana to teach—and me? I finally went to work as a draftsman, which progressed through the years into electrical engineering. In 1967, we moved to albuquerque where we spent the next 51 different ways to make money years, and now, we are in mesa, AZ. Our moves to seattle, then albuquerque, and finally to mesa have placed us in situations where different ways to make money we had to rely on each other until we could different ways to make money develop a network of new friends. Each time we had to reconfirm each other as friends, and as a result, we rarely go our separate ways. We enjoy each other’s company and do almost everything together.

We lived 51 years in albuquerque and wer e blessed different ways to make money to have a very strong church family to help us different ways to make money over the challenging times. In 1999 we were part of the launch team for different ways to make money hope in the desert episcopal church and served as co-directors for the altar guild. As a church family, all with immense faith in our lord and savior, we took care of and supported each other.

I don’t believe the length of a marriage necessarily proves it’s a good or bad thing. We all have had different experiences since 1960 and have different ways to make money resolved them in different ways; sometimes we have used bad judgment, sometimes we have experienced a bit of luck, and sometimes we have been blessed out of god’s grace. These are very different things.

We have been blessed to have a good marriage, I believe. I appreciate and love marge now more than I did different ways to make money when we were married. I think she kind of likes me also. Somehow it has worked out but I think both of different ways to make money us of would say it wasn’t OUR doing…it was the grace of god. We’ve had many “adventures" along the way. We didn’t ignore these adventures, but went through them together.

I’m glad to see marge and I share this emphasis different ways to make money on a sense of humor. In fact, I’ve seen it in action with them, like the time chuck told a bunch of us the different ways to make money tale about when marge sent him to the store for different ways to make money a bottle of fabric softener, which he could not bring home! It was an important, life-changing moment, yet he had us all splitting our sides with laughter different ways to make money as he told us how and why he could NOT different ways to make money pick up that bottle of softener and bring it home. Even marge, who needed that darn fabric softener, was chuckling. Ah, but that’s a story for another day . . .

• A sense of humor. Everyone makes mistakes. You can laugh about them, cry about them, get mad about them, or ignore them. Laughing is the most fun, the most therapeutic, and the most endearing. Think back on your biggest family blooper. If you eventually found a way to laugh together about different ways to make money it, you may have a candidate for an item of family different ways to make money lore to entertain yourselves into the future, especially at reunions. A sense of humor has always been at the top different ways to make money of my list as being important in any relationship, clear back to high school (when I wanted to date charles, now chuck) the importance of a sense of humor in our marriage different ways to make money and our lives has extended through my parenting and professional different ways to make money years to this day.

• shared values. Whether it’s politics, religion, money, children, food, fun, or something else, it’s really helpful if you both agree on whatever are different ways to make money the “important” things in life. The others have spoken of the importance of religion in different ways to make money their marriages, so I’ll mention a couple other values that can have a different ways to make money big impact on a marriage: first, if one of you is a spendthrift and the other different ways to make money a saver, you could be “buying” trouble. Or, if one of you likes to hang out at the different ways to make money bar and the other likes to go hiking in the different ways to make money mountains, something’s got to give. The potential list could be very long, and it will likely differ from couple to couple. The main thing is to agree, together, on what is important to the both of you.

• flexibility and respect. So, what happens if you don’t agree on some important things? That’s where flexibility and respect come in. A christian-muslim union? A tea-party republican and a progressive democrat? An insatiable carnivore and a SPCA vegan? Both partners in a marriage should have the flexibility to different ways to make money pursue their own beliefs or preferences—at the same time they respect, and are willing to support—the other partner’s commitment to the opposite belief or preference.

• equitability—without keeping score. For me, it’s important not to keep score on who does more different ways to make money work around the house, who earns more money, who carries the larger burden of childcare, or who got the last piece of apple pie. I try to think in terms of overall equitability, whether it’s about work or play or food. This applies to sharing decision-making fairly, avoiding the trap of taking turns, as in, “you got to decide where we go on vacation; it’s my turn to choose our new car!” that kind of equitability might not turn out well. And speaking of sharing, make sure you carve out and share time together, to enjoy each other’s company.

“sunday morning sex” “upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, katie went straight to her grandparents’ house to visit her 95-year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, “he had a heart attack while we were making love different ways to make money on sunday morning.” horrified, katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years different ways to make money old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. “oh, no, my dear,” replied granny. “many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time the best time to different ways to make money do it was when the church bells started to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the ding and out on the dong.” she paused to wipe away a tear and continued, “he’d still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn’t come along." “if you do not laugh at this, then you are seriously depressed. Make a doctor’s appointment. I will never hear church bells ringing again without smiling.”
