A day worthy of note almost passed without comment. Yesterday was the 43rd anniversary of my parents’ wedding.
In a society where a third to a half of all marriages end in divorce, a culture that promises happiness, personal fulfillment, and better sex to the unfaithful, that’s worth public acclaim.
Being married is work, sometimes hard work. But my mom and dad stuck it out, taking the long view and the hard road instead of the easy way out. Now they’re enjoying their retirement years being a big part of the lives of a wonderful grandson and granddaughter.
Mom and Dad, you are an inspiration, and I will never be able to thank you enough.
