40 Years

I took these pictures 2 years ago today when my parents celebrated 38 years of marriage. And today I get to say with pride they have made it 40 YEARS. I see way more than just two people smiling at one another, holding one another, still tickling the other, taking a ride on a canoe, and look dang beautiful.

I see sacrifice.

I see dedication.

I see unconditional love.

I see fights that scared me.

I see tears.

I see flirting.

I see service.

I see sarcasm.

I see unexpected cards.

I see frustration beyond frustration.

I see forgiveness time and time and time again.

I see concern.

I see those hands holding the other when sick.

I see Jesus.

I see respect even when one may have hurt the other.

I see words that may never have been expressed, but didn’t need an explanation.

I see two people that came together to become a family, to raise 3 children together, and still working their butts off.

I proudly say my parents did not ever give up on one another. I proudly say I love them with all my heart. I proudly say they chose MARRIAGE.

Happy 40 years, mom and dad!

I love you, (sweet-pea) annapociask_0243annapociask_0244annapociask_0245annapociask_0246annapociask_0247annapociask_0248annapociask_0249annapociask_0250annapociask_0251annapociask_0252annapociask_0253
