My father has never, and I mean never, waited until an actual occaison to give a gift. He thinks about it early, buys it early, and gives it early.
He just can’t wait.
So, it’s 81 days until my parents’ 1,576,800,000 second anniverary. (That’s 50 years if you don’t want to do the math.)
He gave her this medal last weekend.
I guess it’s because she’s always said she deserved a medal of honor for her part in the marriage.
I know that I’ve learned from my parents that when both parties think they’re giving way more and taking way less, that it’s probably even. And that happiness is a decision. And that it takes effort.
So Happy Anniversary to my parents. 81 days early.
(I’ll be back!)
