This week marks 40 years of marriage for my parents!
Isn’t that amazing?
I am so proud of them. I am even luckier to call them my parents They have been the best role models I could have ever dreamed of having.
My parents have taught me about a good marriage. They have shown me that it is not something to give up on. I have watched them my whole life. I have seen them work together to reach a goal. I have seen them encourage each other. I have seen them sacrifice for each other. I have seen them lift each other up. I have seen them pray together and put God at the front of all they do.
My parents have taught me about being a parent. Growing up, I watched them sacrifice for their children. They provided my sister, brother, and me guidance while letting us take risks. They walked with us. They pushed us. They held us accountable. They let allowed us to grow and do amazing things. My parents taught us to be independent from them but, more importantly, dependent on God.
I pray that my marriage will continue to grow and be as strong as theirs. I pray that I will be as good of a parent to Bubba and Dude as they have been to me. I thank God for giving me my parents.
Happy anniversary Mom and Dad! Here’s to many more years together!
I love you guys!!
