Monday's Memories

This week I thought I would share a photo of my parents as a young married couple in honor of their 60th wedding anniversary, which they will be celebrating this week. This photo was taken at my aunt's wedding, my mom and dad had been married for five years with two children and a third on the way. There would eventually be five children in all.


No big celebration is planned for this anniversary, just a quiet dinner out together. They had planned an out of town jaunt but (wisely) decided to stay closer to home. They are still pretty independent and for fun they sing with a group that entertains folks in nursing homes. My dad was a patient in one of the homes that they visit after a illness left him pretty debilitated. He gets a kick out of going back to the therapy unit and showing them how well he is doing. 

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

Dear Maryann, What a joy to see a marriage that last and is an example to a world that has no commitments to anyone or thing...
Loved seeing the picture, I wish we still wore dresses like that!
Have a lovely week! Roxy

What a sweet post and I love that pic! Amazing how many folks are living to celebrate 60 years these years. But, then again, with divorce the way it is, there will be fewer and fewer in the years ahead to make such a monumental anniversary.
