Celebrating 30 Years

October 12 is memorable to many Americans because it is Columbus Day, the day in 1492 that Christopher Columbus landed in The Bahamas, thinking he had reached South Asia. However, in my family, October 12 is special because it is the day my parents were married in 1980.  Today, exactly three decades ago in Atlanta, GA, my mother and my father took vows to love each other through sickness, health, good times and bad, for the rest of their lives.  I am so grateful to God for bringing these two wonderful people together (even though when they first met they were both dating other people), and for keeping them together throughout the years.  Mom and Dad, I love you, and happy 30th anniversary!

  1. Your parents sound like such a lovely couple! And they have a lovely daughter, so clearly it all makes sense.

  2. Happy Anniversary to your parents! They look so happy together:)

  3. Thanks Tara and Mary Grace--I think they're a lovely couple, too. :)
