49 Years

Forty Nine years.  What does that mean to you?  Have you even been alive for 49 years?  Think back to what's happened in the last 49 years.  Think what our world will be like 49 years from now.  Have you had a friend for 49 years?  Have you been going through your same routine every morning for the last 49 years?  Have you had the same job/career for 49 years?

Forty Nine Years...that's how long my mom and dad have been married.  They celebrated forty nine years of marriage on Thursday February 25.  And I told everyone who would listen to me.  I bragged.  I gloated.  I was proud and prejudiced!

I've never asked my folks what their "secret" is.  I don't have to.  I don't think there is a secret to their successful marriage other than they respect the sanctity of it.  They made a commitment to one another and it was just that simple. They've lived up to the expectation of the union they made so long ago.  And they have been ideal role models for our entire family.

Please share in my excitement for these two.  They are my world, my comfort zone and just what I want to be like when I grow up!

Happy Anniversary Mom & Daddy (aka Mema & Papa)!!
