Golden Wedding Anniversary

Friday my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. This is quite an achievement in today’s day and age and we are very proud of them. Especially for two such strong-willed people! They are good, God-fearing people, wonderful parents, and a great example to me, my brother and sister and our children; but strong-willed nonetheless!

However, they hung in there. Through all the good and bad times, the better and worse, the sweet and the sour. And they made it! In doing so they set the bar quite high for us children. We still have a long way to go before we get to the 50 year mark, but with the Grace of God – which my parents will tell you is all that saw them through – hopefully we will make it. 

With both me and my sister living overseas, we unfortunately missed out on all the festivities and yesterday’s family gathering. So to keep all the emotions at bay I tried to keep busy, doing what I normally find lots of excuses NOT to do...... tidying my craft room of course!
