our continued loving legacy

Yesterday, my parents celebrated their 47th anniversary!! I have been so blessed in my life to grow up knowing and seeing how much my parents love one another. They showed me that marriage isn't always roses and romance, but it can always be wonderful. 



They never forget to say "I love you"... To one another or to my brother, sister, & I. They are a living breathing example of what a Christ centered marriage looks like. Again, I'm a very blessed girl. Not only did I marry into a very similar family... Rob and I are both blessed with parents who have truly lived an example of marriage for us... But also our grandparents on both sides. 

Yesterday would've also been my Granny and Papaw's 66th wedding anniversary. This year they celebrate together, in heaven. 

To have so many who are going/have gone before us, my mom & dad, Rob's parents, grandmother & grandpa Stratton, granny & papaw Rice, grandma & grandpa Kolb, and grandma & grandpa Tisthammer... It's truly spectacular.  I would really like to add all of their "years" of marriage together ... I can guarantee an impressive number!! I also wish we could bottle their wisdom! I mean, really. That is our parents AND grandparents. No divorce. Doesn't even seem possible these days. It's truly amazing. ❤

I can only hope and pray that we provide our children with a similar example. So thankful for our legacy.
