After 39 years of marriage, I still don't know how they keep things going. Maybe this holds true for my "parentals":
"Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads,
hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together
through the years."
I've seen them work through the ups and downs just like any married couple. Though no relationship's ever perfect, still they strive to do their best at it. And I couldn't be more grateful for the loving care and attention (excessive, at most) at they've given me and my brother since we were born.
I LOVE YOU MOM & DAD!
PS. Mom, you owe me for this post........................... kidding! :p
