Forty Years

Last weekend, my parents celebrated their fortieth anniversary.  My siblings and I spent a couple of weeks planning the party, including roast (of course).

The part that a better writer could express is that when my parents were married and had their kids, the five of us became a really strong group.   We’ve stuck together through lots of silly quabbles and serious hardships.

None of this would have been possible if my parents had not given us the gift of stability.  Forty years of loving each other and doing the best they could for us.

Thanks Mom and Dad!
