Happy Anniversary Dad and Mom

Yesterday my folks celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary.  52 years of being married to each other, and still the best of friends.  In this day and age I truly feel that this is a huge achievement.


This photo was taken a few weeks ago on my Mom's 75th birthday.

They are a total inspiration to me.  They have provided such a stable family life for me and it is only as I have grown older that I have come to really appreciate all that they did for me while I was growing up - and how much they continue to do for us.

I love you both so much Mom and Dad - wishing you many more happy years together !

(I guess this means that they must be true friends because they have certainly had their fair share of hard times !!!!)
