Lordy Lordy Married for Forty*

Today's my parent's 40th wedding anniversary, and it's certainly cause to celebrate.  When my sisters and I were discussing gifts, I suggested that we buy an ad in the "Milestones" section of the Sunday newspaper.  This was a joke, because I actually can't think of anything  my mom would dislike more than that.  I tried to convince them that she's just been joking around all these years and she'd actually get a big kick out of it.  They weren't persuaded, but told me that I could do it.  Well, I didn't.  Instead, I'm posting here.

Here they are at the prom.  
The wedding picture I had was grainy and my dad's head was cut off..
My parents started dating when they were barely teenagers.  Along the way they had 3 girls and taught them that with hard work and a sense of humor anything's possible.  They've set a fine example of how to make a marriage work.

I'm pretty sure that 2012 has, to date, been one of their hardest years yet.  But it's turning the corner.  It has to be.

So a very Happy Anniversary!  

*And every passive aggressive newspaper milestone has to have a cheesy catch phrase.  This is the best I could do.
