30 years together.
I literally can't imagine how that feels, because I have not even been alive that long.
These two though, they love each other more every day. Honestly.
I know it sounds crazy... and I think part of that is our broken society and that marriage has become something created only to make us happy, so when it gets tough or challenging, which any relationship should, people just let it go like it doesn't matter. They never quit. In fact, the rough times seem to pull them even closer.
They defend each other. They really and truly never speak ill of each other. They always have the other person's back. They celebrate the good times and mourn sad things, and always try to respect where the other person is coming from. They love well.
Everyone who meets my parents wants them to be their own. They have an open door policy, and once you have spent an evening with them, you are a part of their family. How amazing is that? They mean it. They are so generous and view life as an opportunity to be a blessing to others. And they are! It's really incredible.
I feel proud to be a part of their legacy.
I can only hope my marriage is as strong as theirs.
Cheers Mom and Dad :)
Here's to 30 more!
