On the 5th of October 1967, my parents became husband and wife.
47 Years later, 4 children and a lifetime of amazing memories, they are still together, happy as can be.
On the 05th of October 2014, this past weekend actually, we celebrated with them as they gave thanks to God for all those amazing years.
I must say, I have not seen a couple more in love. The way they look at each other and relate to each other is enough to warm your heart and put a smile on your face. Sure, there were challenges in their marriage, but the beauty and their love far outweighs any challenge they may have had.
I am my parents child, through them I learned agape, which is unconditional love. Of course, I would give anything to have what they have, it’s the same with everyone who sees them and the love they have for each other.
All you have to do is to look at them, to see the love they share. It’s a really beautiful and rare thing.
As their child, I was so honored to share in their joy and their love. I was so honored to be a product of what they made together and honestly, I couldn’t ask for better parents.
So mama na papa, I am so proud to be your child, and I am so blessed to have parents like you who loved and continue to love me unconditionally.
We have come so far, we didn’t always understand each other but what has emerged is a love and an understanding that surpasses all.
Happy 47 years! That is truly phenomenal. . . And may God continue to bless you through the next 47 years together!
You are truly an inspiration to me and my sisters and my brother, and through you two we have learned the value of family. We know love because we have seen your love.
Thanks for being amazing through it all. . .
Mad love forever! !
