It probably also has something to do with:
-Unconditional acceptance of one another.
-Commitment to similiar goals.
-Praying together daily.
-Unity in marriage with freedom to be individuals.
-A sense of humor.
-Unconditional commitment to each other and to God.
I am sure there is more to it than that. But watching my parents as I grew up, these were some of the things that were obvious to me.
I will always remember Dad coming home from work, meeting Mom in the kitchen and kissing her heavily, with a lot of tongue and butt rubbing included.
Mom would giggle and seem slightly embarrassed, but I knew that my dad was in love with my mom.
That knowledge gave me comfort.
And I think that I am more successful in my own marriage of 11 years because I had them to learn from.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.
I'm glad God helped you find each other. And I'm grateful I got to be one of your kids.
