50 Golden Years Together

Hello to all my stamping friends! Yes, I know this is not a fabulous creation from my studio - but this picture is the reason that I have been totally non-productive this week.
This Saturday, May 24th is my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary! My dh and I are hosting a special dinner for them tomorrow night to celebrate this truly remarkable milestone!
Their lasting marriage is a testament to their determination that thru thick and thin, they would stay together. As a child growing up, one of my most precious memories is hearing them speak the words "I love you" to each other every day and showing me what real love is.
Having been married now for almost 17 years myself, I know that real love is rarely hearts and flowers and an easy road. It's tough, heartbreaking work sometimes, but it's the most worthwhile thing in the world to work at outside of parenting. The cost is high but the rewards are so sweet!
So, Mom and Dad - I love you, I'm grateful to you and I'll always be proud to be your daughter! Congratulations and I pray God will continue to bless your life together.
