40 year celebration
I want to wish a very special congratulations to my parents who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary today!
My parents’ wedding anniversary is more than a milestone; it’s a tribute to the strong foundation they built for our family.
These two met through work and are more in love today than they were on December 18th, 1976.
I’ve been incredibly blessed to have a Mum and Dad who have stayed together for so long. Many relationships don’t work out, so growing up with parents who have had such a loving and devoted union has been like hitting the lottery of life. Their constancy has always been there for me to rely on. Their love has always been an example for me. By working to overcome the struggles that all couples have, they not only made each other happy, but they created a healthy environment for my brother, sister and me to grow into the good people we have become.
Bryan and Wendy have modeled what it means to be a great parent. Unconditional love and support for one another, and their children.
My mum is a beautiful person inside and out. I have many fond childhood memories, when home sick from school she would cook my favourite savoury pancakes and we would watch soapie’s on the tv.
I believe she was put here on this earth to be an encouragement and source of inspiration to those who know her. She is a friend to all who know her and its so awesome watching her be a super Nanny to Mason & Khloe still jumping on the trampoline at the age of 60 and always having the time for them.
My dad is my hero. He’s a hard worker that has always put his family before himself. I admire him more than words can express or that he’ll ever know. Most of my favorite childhood memories are from going on camping trips with my dad, and eating milk milo. We could never predict the sickness from being succumb to cancer twice. He is the strongest man I know.
The sacrifices that my folks have made for us will keep us forever in their debt. I love them so much and I wish them another 40 years of wedded bliss!
Your togetherness in good and bad times has taught us teamwork. Your tolerance for each other’s habits has taught us patience. Your support during each other’s crises has taught us solidarity. Your lives as our parents have taught us how to live. Happy anniversary Mum and Dad xx
