Here’s the last half of the slideshow my sister and I put together for my parents’ Golden Anniversary party:
Each of carries within us a piece from past generations: an aptitude, a special talent, a twinkle in the eye, a smile.
Fortitude. Courage. Conviction. Cheekbones!
Intelligence. Creativity, Vision.
And as the next generation grows up, we are thankful for the many gifts and lessons passed down from our parents.
I discovered this in my second grader’s desk at Back to School Night this past year. I was so very proud.
Ummm…we’re still working on that one.
I’m quite convinced that my mother could whip up a teleportation device, if given a handful of paper clips, some tinfoil, and maybe a few coat hangers…
Snappy dressing? Let’s just say it’s a family tradition
“What’s that, Mom? You want me to pick up the money, do you? Hah! Here’s what I think of your money. I’m picking the pen, so you better start saving up…I’m planning on grad school!”
We sometimes disagree. Correction. We frequently disagree. Correction. We always disagree.
But we sometimes, frequently, and always kiss and make up.
It must be genetic.
Thank you, Mom and Dad, for giving us 50 memorable years filled with love and joy. We love you.
Wishing each and every one of you a beautiful weekend.
