Today I am taking a moment to share something that I wrote back in September- I wasn’t sure if I would ever publish it or not- but with my heart very heavy lately missing my Mom- it seemed right. Thanks for letting me share today~
Today is my parents wedding anniversary. A reminder of so many things… good and bad. A great love and a love lost. I have been hearing a song repeatedly on the radio lately and it wasn’t until recently that it really struck me as my parents love song. The song is called Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips.
In different ways my parents both gave each other great support and sacrifice. It wasn’t an easy road for them and it wasn’t without hard work and angst and love. Raising four daughters never could lead down a perfect road. But somehow their two personalities evened each other out. My Mom, the sensitive, loving, worrying, dreaming soul. And my Dad, the realist, patient, resilient, kind soul. It’s funny because I couldn’t tell you who was the rock of our family because they both were in their own ways- which I guess is how you make it 30 some years.
