Happy Anniversary!

Today is my mom and dad's anniversary. 38 years together, 5 kids and 14 grandkids. They amaze me!

I took this picture a few weeks ago. I was sitting behind them and thinking about what great examples of love they are to me. I remember growing up, I never wondered if my mom and dad loved each other - they were very good about not only showing their affection for their kids, but for each other as well. And I think that is what makes a strong marriage. I remember my dad coming into the kitchen, giving my mom a kiss and then turning to us kids and asking - "do you know that I love your mother?" I always knew that if I could find a man that would show his emotions about me openly like my parents did for each other, I would have a happy and successful marriage and family. And to this day, my parents are always very affectionate and I know that the sparks are still there for them!

So happy anniversary mom and dad - and many more to come!!
