Almost 37 years and counting

My in-laws are here today and I adore them. They stand together in a time when many marriages fall apart. They married at 18 and have been inseparable since. I have to wonder what those hands have been through together- heading off to Italy as young newlyweds, holding 3 different tiny babies, comforting through the loss of a parent, and I'm sure so much more. I have so much to learn about love and they are one of the examples that I look to. I admire the way they've raised their children. I mean, my husband is practically perfect! (Actually, I love the way that both my husband and I were raised. Thanks moms and dads!) I hope that 29 years from now Ant and I will still hold hands.
