This weekend my parents will be married FIFTY years.
Holy crud, that's a long time.
When I look at these sweet pictures of my very young parents (my mom was 18, my dad 19) I can't help but appreciate the fact that they've stuck it out together.
Marriage isn't a walk in the park, or maybe it's a walk in a really hilly park, you know like a hard walk.
And I appreciate the fact that they never gave up on that walk.
I can only imagine what they must think when they look back at these pictures.
Probably something like, "wasn't that just yesterday?"
Congratulations, mom and dad! Celebrating 50 years is a BIG DEAL.
Here's to FIFTY more. :-)
My parents song, by the one and only Elvis:
Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you.
Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you.
Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
