Today my parents celebrate 30 years of marriage. A great feat for any couple. I know they occasionally have a little nosey at my blog and so I thought I’d like to write a little post about them, as a way of thanking them for being the best parents any child could wish for.
My mum and dad met on a blind date on a bridge, not really the stuff of romance novels and yet here they are 30 odd years on nagging and laughing with eachother as if no time has passed.
They’ve had more than their fare share of struggles. My mum grew very sick and at one stage, none of us, including her, were sure that she would make it out the other side. But through the nights of crying and hope and willing her to get better, she did, and with dad by her side every step of the way, you wouldn’t even know she had ever been that Ill.
They have both helped eachother through their personal struggles and family ups and downs and they still stand stronger than ever.
I couldn’t tell you what the secret is behind a love like theirs, but I hope that I have a sweetheart that I can be with and look back on 30 years of happy marriage with and they are a true inspiration.
As children, me and my sister and brother could not have hoped for more understanding, kind and generous parents, who can give you a big kick up the backside when you need it and yet be there to cuddle you when it all comes tumbling down and for that I know all three of us are truly grateful.
Here’s to you Mum and Dad and here’s to 30 more happy and silly years to come.
Until Next Time
