A Diamond of Sixty Years Together….

My Mum and Dad – sixty years ago…. โค

We gathered as a family to celebrate my Mum and Dad's Diamond Wedding Anniversary recently.

The children, grandchildren and great grandchildren bearing testimony to their lives together. All sparking in unique ways with the love, blessings, resilience, fortitude, flexibility, adventuring spirits, creativity and care that has sprung from their foundation.

We all love you both. โค

    CONGRATULATIONS! I also admiringly noticed that the happy couple commented on your blog – to still be that savvy and up-to-date at their age is also a major achievement. Perhaps they egg each other on? What a happy union. Dan, my husband, and I boast 44 years and counting!
