NOW it's Finally...The MOST Wonderful Day!

I had a very bad calendar date remembering day yesterday and wished my folks a happy 60th. One day early...o dear...As I wrote yesterday but applies to today, the 19th: 
December 19, 1948
Today, exactly 60 years ago, our most wonderful parents had the good sense to marry each other. They've abided all these years, through thick and thin, gathering family and friends along for the ride, and what do they have to show for it?? Just an enormous bunch of folks, be they family or friends (really one and the same) who love them dearly and would do anything for the two them! What a wonderful life they've had...and have given to us - actually everyone they've loved and who love them. (That loving them part is so very easy to do!) 
Sky Watch Friday, yup, also part of this post.
Above, the church where my parents were married,
 California, MO.

Dad was part of the Korean War effort - in a  MASH unit - can you believe it?!? 
He and mom had a 6 month furlough in Japan (where this photo was taken). 

Just love to you, our dearest parents...what a gift you've been! 

Not only to us, your children, but to every life you've ever touched. 

The happiest of anniversaries to the two of you, 
with lots and lots of loves and hugs from (me!!) all of us who hold you 
so very close to our hearts!

xoabb (et al)
expect anything!
