On January 14th my parents celebrated 40 years of marriage! My Dad didn’t talk much, but he knew who we were, and he ate a chocolate eclair to celebrate and shared it with Mom. Then he fell asleep.
Since my Mom doesn’t like refined sugar, I made a Anniversary fruit cup instead, and I carved a 40 on the side of the watermelon bowl:
I’m happy we got to introduce Joel to his Grandpa and get these photos. I hope we get a few more years with Dad.
I’m thankful for my parents’ example of choosing to love and serve each other for all these years. I hope Stephen and I make it to forty years of marriage and beyond!
