28 February 2013

37.

Today would have been a very special day for my parents.

They would have celebrated 37 wonderful years of marriage.
Thirty-seven years.

Some can only dream of finding that kind of love.

And my parents had it.

While this is a hard and very emotional day for our family, especially my mom, we know that February 28th will always remain a very special day in our hearts because it united two people in love.  And look at all the wonderful things that were created because of it. 

True and ever lasting love?...

It exists.

And I thank my parents for showing me that it does.

I started following your blog when I was pregnant with my second daughter Lilly as you were about the same place in your pregnancy with Reid. My heart breaks for your family. Especially for you and your mom. My dad has terminal lung cancer and we have been blessed with so much "extra" time with him. When I found out I was pregnant with #2 I didn't know if he'd still be around to even meet his newest grandchild. My Lilly is 5 months old and my dad lights up whenever he sees/holds her. As hard as it is to see my dad getting weaker I'm so thankful that I have the opportunity to just sit back and take in those precious moments. I don't know you but I think of you and pray for you and your family often. Take care. P.S. Your kids are adorable!

Today my parents celebrated 39 years of marriage. So many ups and downs. The biggest loss was my brothers death in 2000 1 month after his 20th bday. How they survived his death and kept the faith is beyond me. So lucky to have such amazing folks!!
