A Love Story

A Love Story

A Love Story

Era: the 50’s…boy meets girl. Love blooms ♥ Years later, and many dates and a stint in the military, marriage and a love story begins. This story belongs to my parents. It is a story that transcends throughout decades and millions of people to be sure, but this love story is the one our family lived. Throughout their marriage, there were four children that multiplied to ten grandchildren which multiplied to four and soon to be five great grandchildren, (my parent’s took their vows to be fruitful and multiply seriously and we all followed suit). There were many happy times, and many not so happy times as life is not all a bed of roses unless you are wearing rose colored glasses, but the constant that always remained was a deep love built on a base of friendship and trust that weathered many a storm and celebrated many a blessing. What an example of what life and love is for all of us to learn and live. What makes this story so beautiful, is the love that lives on after my father died. You see it in the eyes of my mom, the way her eyes shine when she talks about my dad or remembers a memory, and the sadness when she is feeling her loss. We all as a family experience the emotional roller coaster when you miss your loved one. For our family, it is our deep love for each other and our deep rooted faith that carries us forward on this journey we call life. Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad! May we all be blessed with a love story as beautiful as yours ♥
