"Happy Anniversary" or "How Blessed Am I?"

My Parents celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary this week.
That's about two thirds of their lives that they spent with each other.
I know that they have benefitted beyond what I can even understand by being part of a happy, loving marriage.
But I have to point out that I have definitely been blessed by their marriage as well.
Mainly, I was born to a mother and father who wanted me and loved me.
I was raised by loving parents who taught me, nurtured me and provided for me, and taught me God's gospel.
I have never known the pain of divorce close to me.
My parents are still together and still there for me whenever I need them. (Even though they are almost never home).
I love my parents and I am so happy for them.
42 years down and eternity to go.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.

If you would like to read the post I wrote for them last year >>>click here<<<. It'a pretty good one.

In response to "Maternal Instinct" - Not Funny. Identifying this pig shouldn't be too hard to do either since you've supplied the feed (no pun intended)! On to DSS.

I am confused by your comment.
But I am relatively unconcerned.
I guess I can't make everyone happy all the time.
