Because I've been experiencing camera withdrawal symptoms all week, I've been thinking about my blogs--especially this one. Looking back through my photos, I realized that I captured several great shots of my parents. So I've been thinking about them, and the legacy--the heritage--they've given me.
Just the fact that they're married, and have been married this long while (48 years), is a testimony to the heritage they've created, even if they haven't realized it. Though my own marriage is very different from theirs--anyone who knows my darling husband would know this--their steadfastness of commitment to each other shines through, and is reflected in my marriage to Fernando.
I've seen them laugh together. I've seen them kiss. :) I've seen them fight and make up. I've seen that love isn't a mushy gushy feeling; it is a solid, everyday commitment to one's spouse, in good times and bad, with ups and downs, all along the way, no matter what.
I grew up with safety and security in the knowledge that dads and moms stay together. I never even thought about it until my adult years.
Their life isn't perfect. Whose is?? But they are together. The two as one.
A beautiful heritage of steadfast love.
Back to life,
