My parents have been married for 39 years and counting. They taught me what unconditional love means. They would be the first to tell you that there is no such thing as the perfect marriage, but in the eyes of a little girl growing up, they had it. They taught me that marriage takes 3 – wife, husband and God. My dad has a witty sense of humor. Maybe this characteristic which has kept us all laughing over the years is what drew my mother to him. My mother shows kindness and forgiveness to everyone. She always knows the right thing to say in any situation. Maybe this is what drew my dad to her. Maybe these are characteristics that have withstood the test of time and kept them loving each other for almost 4 decades. Thanks mom and dad for teaching me that marriage is a commitment – not just to each other, but to God.
