Love is patient, love is kind. 
It does not envy, it does not boast, 
it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 
it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not 
delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It 
always protects, always trusts, always hopes, 
always perseveres.  Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Today we celebrated the wedding anniversary of my parents.  They have been through so much the past 30+ years, yet through it all remained a strong, Godly couple.  I am so thankful for the parents they have been to me and the grandparents they are to my girls.  They are an awesome example of what it is like to stand beside one another through thick and thin and truly live up to their wedding vows.

I wanted to do something for them to help make their day special.  Life has been crazy for them the past seven months and I wanted them to be able to really celebrate the day.  The girls and I got a few gifts together, baked cupcakes and threw a little party for them.  My hubby bought the makings of a special dinner for them which included steak wrapped in bacon, shrimp and my parents' favorite drinks.  (This was so sweet of him since he wasn't even able to be part of the celebration due to work.)

One of my favorite moments from today was when Dad, who was outside cooking dinner on the grill, texted "I love you" to Mom who was in the kitchen getting the rest of dinner ready.  How darn precious is that?!  My second favorite was when we did the toast and Mom and Dad an "arm twist toast" with their glasses.  They are just too cute for words!

My parents did have a special day and I am so thankful that we were able to bless them this way.  It was just a small thank you for who they are and all they do.
