Freely Ye Have Received, Freely Give

Today is December 30th. Today we celebrate our 30th Anniversary.

Randy received a call:

"This is so-and-so from The Roof.  I'm calling to confirm your reservation at 7:00 pm on Thursday night."

Randy a bit bewildered replied, ".... Okay....  Is this supposed to be a surprise?"

"Ummm.... yes...."

Maybe it is the tasty food, maybe its the fancy atmosphere, maybe its the incredible view of the Salt Lake Temple where we were married; this just happens to be our favorite restaurant. Someone gave us a very sweet anniversary surprise. Audrey and Jenni happen to know who it was, but they are sworn to secrecy. "When someone wants to give, just be willing to receive, and DON'T ASK QUESTIONS!"

So, whoever you are, please accept our very sincere delight, surprise, and pure appreciation for a very thoughtful gift! We were thrilled to tears. You have touched us deeply.

"... Sacrifice is made sweet to us when we treasure the joy it brings to another heart."
President Henry B. Eyring

  1. Yeah for you both. You deserve it. Are you guys aging at all. I can't see signs of it.

  2. I look up to you two so much. Thanks for being an example to my all of these years and for sharing your family with me, especially Audge. I hope to be as happy as you two in my marriage. I love you both! And Happy Anniversary!

  3. The Roof is probably my favorite as well! Happy you could enjoy it!
