As in my parents' 30th wedding anniversary that is~Congrats Mom & Dad!
I know that I truly take for granted just how special this accomplishment is since this is pretty well the standard in my family (immediate & extended). Divorce is just not something that has happened very much & when I say that I mean that it has only happened (I think?) 3 times in my families, which might sound normal/average until you consider that I have 14 biological aunts & uncles most of whom are married & 56 biological & adopted cousins (1/2 to 3/4 who are also married already!) Add in my parents, both of my grandparents' long marriages, my marriage & my sisters' marriages & that's a whole lot of people with a whole lot of marriage/love experience! I feel blessed to have grown up with so many great examples. That being said, I also realize that the choice to love someone for life is both the easiest & the hardest thing that one will do, but in the end it is so worth it & I hope I am lucky enough to have (at least) 30 years of it too!
How hard can it be with such a great example of two such star-crossed lovers to follow?
Wait a minute...am I still talking about my parents?
I asked mom on the phone tonight "So does it feel like it's been 30 years?"
"Sometimes. When your father picks at me, it definitely feels like 30 years-it gets old after awhile you know...he only does it to get a rise out of me because he thinks it's funny, but it's not."
Awwwww...can't you just feel the love :)
(Sorry to pick on you mom~I'm not sure where that comes from ;) Congrats again!
