Our oldest son and daughter-in-law have been married for 18 (eighteen!!) years. But when I was going through my digital photos, I couldn't find any recent photos of the two of them together. But, it's understandable: six kids later there's a lot going on. Parenting years are like that.
So here, I'm going to post some photos of what it means to be a parent.
It means being willing to model tinfoil Egyptian accessories so we can try out the VBS craft projects! What a good sport.
It means feeling sorry for and taking time to comfort the kid with the newest owie.
It means playing impromptu recorder duets with your teenager so Grandma can enjoy the concert.
It means changing, feeding, and burping the new baby.
It means showing by example that the work God gave us is a good part of life!
It means getting a hug when you least expect it!
It means being there. Not just a few minutes of 'quality time,' but really being there - quantity time.
Have a happy anniversary, you guys. We pray for God's continued blessing on your life together.
P.S. Remind me next time we're together that I take a photo of the two of you!! :-)
P.P.S. We love you.
