We spent the weekend celebrating. Saturday was the 40th wedding anniversary of two of my favorite people who just happen to be my parents.
My sister and I planned a reception, which I'll tell you more about later in the week, and we were all excited to see so many friends and family.
But, I can't let a milestone like this go by without taking the opportunity to say again how blessed I am to have these people for my parents.
I have watched them my entire life, but the older I become, the more I realize how rare it is to find people like them. As one of our friends noted, 40 years of marriage is not just a goal to attain, but a true testimony of faithfulness, to God and to each other. It's not just making a promise at an altar once upon a time, but committing every day to stay true to what you promised. And that's just what they've done.
We love you!
