65 Years Of Marriage

I want to dedicate today’s post to my parents as yesterday they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. I am proud of them for sticking it out through the good times and the bad.

My parents weren’t rich while I was growing up, however, they took my brother and me camping, fishing, we were both involved in scouting and we were the house that all the kids in the neighborhood hung out at.

We went to the drive in theater, picked wild mushrooms and walked fields looking for Indian relics. Mom made homemade meals every day. It may not seem like much to some people, but to me it was a wonderful way to grow up. We had both our parents that loved us so it couldn’t be any better than that. I am who I am because of them.

  3. Wow, that is an amazing accomplishment, 65 years. Wish them a belated anniversary from me. My dad passed when I was only 8, but my mom was amazing. She did all those things with us and I never felt like I missed out on anything, but I sure missed my dad. You are right, you are the person you are today because of them. Wonderful!!
