I’ve mentioned it on this blog before but today is a very special day for me and the rest of my immediate family. Four decades ago, my parents got married on this day (actually, is it 41 years, no I’m pretty sure it’s 40). Marriages don’t last as long these days so staying with your spouse for four decades is quite an accomplishment. I took my parents out for dinner on Sunday. It was a very low-key affair but I’m hoping they have a nice dinner by themselves tonight to celebrate.
I’ll be forever thankful to them for staying together all these years through thick and thin. It must have not been easy to have been my parents over the years and I’m sure they leaned on each other for support during the many times I was unemployed or just sitting on my ass trying to figure what my next in life was going to be.
Congrats to my mother and father!
