Wednesday was my parent 45th wedding anniversary. 45 years. That is a lifetime. That is amazing.
It is hard for me to wrap my head around being with someone that long, considering I am not yet 40 (but will be soon).
They and their relationship, are my rock. No matter what, I know they are and will be together. They have taught me so much about love, relationships, how to treat another human being and so much more. I am love them and am so very thankful that they are together. Not because of the kids, not because they don’t want to be alone… but because they truly love, care and respect each other. After 45 years, they are still affectionate with each other. They are in their 70’s, and they still hold hands, they still kiss each other, they still pat each other on the behind. And it is sweet and wonderful.
I love them!
