The card I am sharing today, however, is in celebration of a special couple’s anniversary: my Dad and “Mom II” Carole.
It is such a joy to celebrate their happiness. They are such great role models of a truly caring, loving married relationship.
Though my biological parents divorced when I was young, I am happy for both of them that they have found loving, lasting marriages on Round 2.
(And for those of you that weren’t around when I was a new blogger close to a year ago, I’d love to share one of my favorite posts with you from back in July of last year to read the story of my reunion with my Dad.)
So Dad and Carole, I join you in celebrating your upcoming special day. I thank you for your love and example. And most of all, I love you dearly. Celebrate YOU!
