All Because Two People Fell in Love

We attended a very special surprise party last Saturday. It was a birthday/anniversary celebration of J's grandparents. Grandma turned 80 on the 11th, Grandpa 86 today the 13th. And next week on the 20th they will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary. WOW--What an event! We enjoyed cake and punch and good conversation. Several of their friends came out and Grandma's sister came down as well. I believe they were surprised and enjoyed it alot.

My mom's folks were married 65 years before my grandmother's death, and my dad's parents also celebrated over 60 years together before my grandpa died a couple years ago. J's other set of grandparents have been married nearly 60 years too. So I guess you can say that we truly come from "a long line of love!!" What a blessing!
