Todays topic, family…I called my folks this morning to wish them a happy anniversary. Hubby looked over and said, how many years have they been married now, as I started counted back by eldest siblings age, I called Mom back to double check, because, I hate to be wrong especially over dates. But 64 years. Now let that sink in for a second. They dated for about 7 years before getting married. Thats awesome, they are still so very much in love.
I remember oh my god, seems like forever ago. There was this woman on the radio Delilah show, (I hope I spelled that correct) she had a Valentines day contest going on. I was young, alot younger then I am now, I believe the contest was to write a poem about love, well as all of you have figured out by now, I write from the heart, or mind but definately Not a poet. Anywho, I sat down gave it thought and wrote a poem about my folks and how they are truly an amazing couple. We won, of course I gave the gift and the poem to them because this is thier love story.
You will not very very often see a gushy side to me, but to see them so in love today its nice to know that at any age romance can still live. They have been through 4 adopted kids that they truly wanted, grandchildren. Life was not always easy, Dad was in the service, Mom was a perfect Military wife and Mother. Dont get me wrong she worked also but because she wanted to. I never heard them argue, I never heard them treat each other with any form of disrespect-ever. A strong, loving, happy fulfilling marriage.
With this I am going to end today with a very Happy Anniversary to my folks and anyone else out there celebrating today, enjoy your day as best you can. Peace, love each other, until we meet again. Your Grumpy Godmother❤
