Today is the wedding anniversary of my mom and dad. Even though Dad has been gone for almost 12 years, it's still their day. It always will be. My mom had been dating my dad's best friend. After that, she met my dad and in two weeks and two dates, they got married. Talk about a whirlwind!
I know their marriage wasn't perfect, but I know they loved each other and I know they were proud of the family that they made together. I know my mom still loves and adores Dad. Her voice was sad when we talked tonight. I wish I could take that away, but it's all part of our reality now, our lives without him. But, it was fun to listen to her remember old times and relive memories. If Dad were here, it would be their 45th anniversary.
Thanks, Mom and Dad, for showing me what love looks like.
