June 18, 1965 – Throwback Thursday

Mom and Dad.weddingFifty years ago today, my parents were married.   Happy 50th Anniversary to you, Mom and Dad!  May you have a wonderful time remembering your wedding day.  Happy Golden Anniversary!!!

I love this picture of the two of them.  They are so young and excited about starting their life together.  Little did they know then that one day they would be celebrating 50 years as husband and wife.

What an amazing accomplishment in a marriage — 5 decades together!  Five decades of good and bad, ups and downs, laughter and tears, compromises, fun and adventures, schools and jobs, travels and moves, celebrations, births and deaths, and so much more.

It started with the two of them.  Then they had three children — two girls and a boy.  These children then grew up and married and had families of their own.  Now there are five grandchildren.  A family of 13!  What a blessing.

Here are a few quotes about anniversaries:

  • “True love stories never have endings.” — Richard Bach
  • “An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.” — Author Unknown
  • “There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.” — Martin Luther
  • “Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.” — Author Unknown

To my parents, I love you and thank you so much everything!  Have a great day!
