Happy 62nd Anniversary

My parents 62nd anniversary is today. Last year they were part of this article here. As one of seven, each of my siblings marvel at how loving and giving they are. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad. May you have a wonderful day today. The illustration was done by Christine Borders, one of my Mom's friends who has been married 75 years. I have some tough acts to follow, right?

Please leave a comment and I will make sure to give them to my "folks"- they will value each of your lovely words. I had at first said it was the 63rd anniversary, it is only the 62nd - but one more year for good "luck!" Thanks again for your comments!

I was never good at math, and I stated "63" years, actually it is "62" but I guess after all those years what is one more year!
off to adjust~ to 62!
Thanks for each of your comments - Mom (Jean) and Dad (Paul) will be thrilled!
