27 years

Today marks my parents 27th wedding anniversary. There have been some ups and downs, to which I can certainly vouch for, and may have been the cause of…but I know my parents are glued for life. Here are some things I enjoy about my parents.

The way Dad says “Mudder, Mandy wants you” when I’m done talking to him on our regular phone chats.

The way Mom pulls herself together and manages to ignore Dads annoying habits.

The way I feel, and others feel, when walking through the porch door. No one is a stranger in moms and dads house.

The way Dad says he doesn’t like something mom cooks, but eats two and a half plates full anyway.

The way Mom gives presents and puts from “Mom and Dad” all the time.

The way Dad makes an effort to find me a present just from him.

The way Dad and Mom are both obsessed with “the Young and the Restless”. It’s pretty comical.

The way Dad makes sure absolutely everything is in working order on my car before he lets me travel anywhere.

The way Mom crochets and knits me hats, gloves and scarves every winter.

The way Dad seems more concerned and excited about getting mom a good Christmas gift these past few years.

The way Mom gets excited about finding something just right for Dad as a present.

The fact that, despite quarrels, they still sleep in the same bed every night and storm through indifference. I love you Mom and Dad.
