Gratitude is about appreciating the blessings in our lives, and what better way to acknowledge and be thankful for the good things that have happened along the way than to celebrate milestones?
Today would’ve been my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I’m blessed to have witnessed such a beautiful, loving example of marriage while I was growing up and as an adult. My mom and dad genuinely adored each other and treasured the 42 years they had together. Along the way, they inspired so many friends and family with their devotedness. My grandfather used to burst with happiness at the life my mom and dad created, and would tell them, “Don’t ever let the love affair end.” They didn’t. So glad we took every opportunity to celebrate while my mom was still with us!
