39th Anniversary


Today my parents are celebrating their 39th anniversary in Lake Tahoe. They are enjoying the lake and the nature walks. When I called them they were taking a walk with their hats on and binoculars around their necks. They said that they looked like tourist. I can picture them right now because they wear the same thing when we use to go camping. I can hear my dad now roaring like a bear to scare us. He really sounded like one.

There were many things that I learn from my parents, but one that stands out right now is that they always like to spend time together, especially on their anniversary. They also taught me that in marriage there is good times and bad but they always forgave and shown love to each other. No matter what happen they always stick together. If I ask my mom out when I lived on the mountain she always said dad is coming too. She never left my dad out. My dad wouldn't leave my mom out either. I think they are connecting by the hip. Even when they got mad at each other my mom would tell us lets go and us kids would get in the car at start to drive away. My dad would be sitting on the couch mad. The car would stop and start to back up and we would look at each other wondering, what is she doing. She would stop in front of the house and tell me, go get your dad ask him if he wants to come. I would run in to the house and my dad would say "yea"!

If my mom orders a meal from a restaurant my dad would order the same meal. I love it! If my mom thought there was someone trying to brake into the house, my dad would jump up and protected. There was no one braking in to the house but to know that my dad would do anything to save his family, that makes him my hero. My sister and I always wanted to marry our dad, but he was already married to my mom. I think Amber might have married someone like him.

Everyday I saw my parents kiss good morning, good bye or hello. They would give us kisses too! We still do that but over the phone now! Kiss Kiss hang up now! My mom has always told me that my dad was her best friend and he comes first! She is a great wife and mom!


I love you mom and dad! Have a great anniversary. ©All articles and comments on Dinky’s Hum Drum Journal are the property of Bridget Sherman and are Copyright protected.
