32 Years Later

 

 

For some reason 32 years ago my parents thought that getting married would be a good idea. Somehow it all worked out. They are still grossly in love with each other. Any night they are apart from each other they will call to make sure that their voice is the last one the other one hears before they go to sleep.

In those 32 years they:

  • Built 2 different homes
  • Lived in 6 different places
  • Created and raised 2 adequate adults
  • Raised a cat to almost 19 years old
  • Adopted 3 dogs
  • Fostered 44 dogs
  • Felt the loss of a mother
  • Owned 11 different cars (including the clunkers that the children drove)
  • Felt the loss of the family dog twice
  • Held each other up during times of sickness
  • Retired from the daily grind jobs to pursue and flourish in their passion projects
  • Put up with 13 years of the daughter in Girl Scouts
  • Attended countless Track and Cross Country meets where they spent more time watching the woods, for the children to come out running or hoping that their kids didn’t turn right on the track, than anything else
  • Had countless arguments, mostly about their children
  • Fell in love daily
  • Best of all taught their two offspring that it is better to help the world than it is to do nothing
