Love Story

31 years ago today

I just wanted to take a moment to wish my parents a Happy Anniversary. 31 years ago today they said I do and I can honestly say that I don't know a couple more in love then the two of them. Seriously, it was kind of sickening when we were younger but now that I'm all grown up and married myself I realize just how special that is.

I wonder if on that day as they started their new life together, they could have even begun to dream of the life they would create?

Gotta love the hair...and yes, that's me with all that sass!

They will be the first to tell you it wasn't all perfect. They had their rough times. But you want to know what got them through...they gave their marriage to God. They chose to love each other unconditionally even when it got hard. I am so thankful for the wonderful example of marriage as it is intended to be that my parents provided for my brother and I. They made it clear that while we were important to them that they were even more important to each other. Their love was the foundation of our family. And it superseded anything else. Because they loved each other in that way all that love spilled over onto us as well.

31 years later they still choose each other each day. Their love is now spilling over on the people of Mexico as they serve as Missionaries there. They are goofy, fun loving, crazy people who if you don't already know would be lucky to get to know.

Mom and Dad, I love ya lots and wish you at least 31 more years of love and happiness!!
