Happy Anniversary!

My parents surprise 25th Wedding Anniversary was yesterday and it was a success! Their actual anniversary is on Wednesday, though. Our "adopted" grandparents offered their house, and the night before the party my sister and I went there to help decorate and clean. We had approx. 40 people and we even had our parish priest, Fr. Ben, come; he blessed them, had them renew their vows, and it was just beautiful. My poor mom cried from the moment she walked through the door till it was time to eat...that was about 45 minutes or more. She was so touched. What really touched me was that at one point my dad said how he felt he didn't deserve my mom, and he started to cry a little...and you have to understand that my dad never cries, I've probably only seen him cry once or twice in my life, so it was an especially tender moment. They are still in love with each other after 25 years and I love them so much! God bless you Mom and Dad!
