Today Chris’s parents are celebrating their 36th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad H ! They are out of town enjoying a little R&R. I must say, they are very good at taking time to enjoy each other and keep romance in their marriage.
I believe a lot of how we “turn out” is accountable to our upbringing and the examples set for us, though there are always cases of the opposite. And I guess it depends on if you have good examples and want to follow them or if you see things in life that you know you do not want to duplicate. We are fortunate to have had some real “pave the path”-ers to learn from. My parents shared 40 years before they passed away and Chris’s now have been married beyond 36 years. It’s nice to grow up watching your parents work to have good marriages and see (and feel) their love everyday.
Even when they’re gone, you still feel it.
Hopefully we nuts won’t fall far from our tree :)
