28 years ago today... parents became husband and wife. Yes, that's right, today is my parents' 28th wedding anniversary! To my knowledge, neither of my parents reads my blog, but I thought it was only right to wish them a happy anniversary because of the impact their marriage has had on my life.

I've written a few times about their marriage before, but through their example, my parents have taught my sister and I what marriage is all about. It is a choice every day to love the person you committed your life to. It is not always rainbows and sunshine and it takes work every single day. However, you can never truly appreciate the beauty of a rainbow without a little rain, and with the right person beside you, with respect and loyalty and a lot of love, every single second is worth it. Their marriage is such a blessing to me and to my marriage.

Happy 28th Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

I love you both so much, and I am so grateful to have parents as supportive, encouraging, giving and as full of love as the two of you!

It is so great to see great marriages these days. My mom and stepdad have been married 26 years and my hubby's parents have been married 49 years. Now that is commitment. So sad that so many people take marriage so lightly these days. great for your parents.
