I'm not going to write about the statistics of failed marriages here or what breaks apart a once-loving union. Whatever is the reason for the break up, we all know that separation is not uncommon these days. Sad.
So every December, we happily celebrate Pa and Ma's wedding anniversary to mark another year of togetherness. Last December was their 44th. Yes, 44th! Oh, shush... They are not perfect. Pa's (too) silent demeanor annoys Ma to the hilt and Ma's loud and aggressive personality drives Pa nuts. They bicker, they taunt each other. Typical. Sometimes their argument is serious enough to cause a rift. But still...
They may be poles apart in views and personalities but one thing they have in common is their God-centeredness. My siblings and I know, because how Pa and Ma handle things is pretty much WYSIWYG, "what you see is what you get".
And... God-willing... what I see is a lot more celebrations to look forward to. :)
