Happy 40 Years of Marriage

My parents celebrated 40 years of committed marriage last Spring.  I am so grateful to them for being an example of faith and love all these years.

Our eldest girls, along with Aunt Becky, Uncle Conrad and Siya.

 We surprised my parents with a book filled with well wishes from several friends and relatives throughout the years.  It is such a treasure to them.
 And obviously, according to the the picture below, funny stories were included.
I am just now realizing my lackadaisical photo practices this last group photos and of course, of my parents and I!

It is such an honor to be around couples who have stayed married.  I understand the commitment, the longevity, the bearing with one another in love.  It is beautiful.

I love this. Congratulations to your parents! That truly is hard work and a blessing to hear of the commitment. I love the photo album idea. Seriously a treasure.
