"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Little did I know

when I shared about one son getting engaged what would happen with another son.   I have not revealed which son is engaged...but I will say this: within a few days of the announcement another son told Bill and I something.

What did he tell us?   Well he took us to the back yard and said in the most serious of voices that he had met the girl for him...and he would be married pretty much by the end of the year.

Well hotdog! I was surprised and quite happy.

As to the second couple...here is a photo of them.

And I am so happy.

I wish I could share their photo but at this point...
the shoes are the main attraction.

For the record, Bill and I always wanted a large family.  We actually wanted 8 children.   It has been a lovely understanding that I will have my 8 children...and oh how happy I am.

The other neat thing...Fourth is gaining  something Bill and I could never give her~ Sisters!
How wonderful is that?
