Square Life Round World

I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

47 Years

on June 18, 2014

Today is my parents’ 47th wedding anniversary!  47 years!  I called my mom this morning and wished them a happy anniversary.  She said, “We get to throw a big party in 3 years!”  Yes, yes, they do!

In a world where failed marriages are getting to be the norm rather than the exception, I am so incredibly proud of them and the example they set for me and my sister, not only as we were growing up, but in adulthood as well.  At 47 years in, they continue to show me what love and a healthy relationship is like.  I’m not saying they or their relationship is perfect but if I could have written my own book for my life, I would have wanted it to be very similar to theirs.  I’m still hopeful that someday I can be just like them when I grow up.

So Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!  I hope you do something fun to celebrate.  Mom and I will get started soon planning that party.
