66 years!

Today is the 66th anniversary of my parents first wedding - April 8th 1945 ----- April 8th 2012!

To shorten the story, there were a few hard years along the way, and they separated for a while, and led different lives, married other people, and did good things. Somehow, when their separate lives each independently changed direction, they found each other again, and in November of 1972, they were married again!

Long and interesting lives that I have been blessed to be a part of!

Today, with any luck, I will be getting Mom and Dad together to celebrate quietly. Mom is living in Kirkhaven nursing home because Dad can't handle caring for her at home any more. Dad is in re-hab at different local nursing home recovering from another bout of his congestive heart failure. I'm looking forward to the day! The later afternoon will be spent with our son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren and other extended family.
Life is good.
Life is an adventure.
Life is a learning experience.

What a beautiful story about your parents! How blessed you are to be the 'result' of such a 'truly meant to be together' couple!! Congrats to them and you for being such a loving son to help them celebrate their special day together!
