Today, Sunday, July 28, is my parents' 40th wedding anniversary! Since it seems that in today's society so few marriages last longer than a handful of years, I wanted to give a shout out to my parents for sticking together all these years.
Granted, there have been times when I wasn't sure they were going to make it. They are both strong-willed and bull-headed and argued often when I was a child, but they stuck it out and I'm really thankful they did. They are a good example of making a marriage work through good times and through bad. Either one of them could have easily given up and walked away when times got tough, but they didn't and more people should follow their example.
So, happy anniversary, mother and daddy! I hope you have many more years together and I wish you all the happiness in the world! I'm glad y'all got together and became my parents! I love you!
