This year my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary! My dad and I managed to plan a surprise party for my mom, and boy was she surprised. It's hard for my dad and I to keep a secret from her, so you can imagine how difficult it was to keep this a secret for five months!
As they entered the gymnasium, the look on my mom's face was priceless. My dad was a little tearful too (sorry dad I had to tell). Of course we had plenty of entertainment from singing to dancing. Oh and the food was amazing! Times like these are priceless and create memories that last a lifetime.
These veterans of love have taught me that patience, trust, faith and lots of laughter are key to a happy marriage. It would be a true blessing to be half as happy and healthy as my parents are when I celebrate my 40th wedding anniversary. Here's to many more years of happiness together, cheers!
