|40th Wedding Anniversary party|
Once in a while,
right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale.
I believe in magic,
in happy ever after,
...and fantasies that really come true.
For seeing is believing,
and I have living proof,
because I found forever love in you.
Today is my parents 42nd wedding anniversary. My heart is heavy that my Dad is spending it without the love of his life. The poem above is one that he posted on her fb page today. Theirs was a marriage that was a lesson for others. To watch them as a couple was to see two people who always put God first and then everything else just fell into place. They loved each other totally and without reservation, they were kind and thoughtful to each other and all you had to do was watch them watch each other and you just knew their love was special. If all married couples treated each other they way my parents treated each other and their marriage, there would be fewer unhappy people in the world. To watch my parents was to definately see the fairy tale, the magic and the forever love of a happily ever after (it just ended too soon).
Dad, I love you very much and know that Mom is sending you all her love today.
