Renewal of Vows
Posted January 7, 2007on:
How many married couples in this day and age get past their 10th anniversary? 60, 70, 80 percent? And the statistic gets even lower. Instead, some celebrate not anniversaries but 2nd or 3rd marriages! So just imagine now how many get to celebrate their 40th!!!
My siblings and I, together with our spouses and children, are proud that Pa & Ma are still rock-solid after all these years! It wasn’t a smooth ride, mind you. It was full of ups and downs. Every married couple goes through these after all. The only difference that could spell 40 years of togetherness and separation after 10 years is the third party, GOD. As Pa would always say, he, Ma and God are like a tripod – useless if one is lacking.
It was a whirlwind of preparations that was hatched during a road trip from Canada to New Jersey last June 2006. Mitzi and I got so excited discussing the hows, whats and wheres of the special event that Junnie, who was behind the wheel, missed his exit! Hilarious…
After months of long-distance planning via telecon, ym, emails, and wiki (yup, we even had one!), it finally came to fruition. December 22, 2006 was the red-letter day. It was our Pa & Ma’s ruby anniversary…
