30 years of happiness~



May 19, 1979 - the very day mom n dad tied the knot





May 19, 2009 - after exactly 30 years, they are still as loving and caring for each other as they have vowed to each other in front of the pastor, congregation and of course God.




I've learnt a lot from mom and dad on:-



how to handle a marriage...

how to persevere through the hard times...


how to withold grudges towards each other...


how to be patient with each other...


how to openly accept and adapt to each other's flaws...


how to handle crisis in my marriage...


how to respect each other...

...and many more...



mom told me something extremely touching last night which I vow shall remain memorable for me for the rest of my life - she never once regret marrying my dad ~



Tho her answer may sound simple and straight to the point, the factors which lie in her answer to my dad's question shall remain in my mind for as long as I live. My heart was pumping real fast and I felt deeply touched upon hearing that and revowed there and then that I will never dismiss mom, but to continue considering her as my role model in preserving my very own marriage. Who better to take on the role if not my very own MOTHER?

Looking forward too seeing mom n dad celebrate more happy wedding anniversaries in the future!

Congrats to your parents, Kath!

And that was a lovely piece you've written about them. Bet G & you will do just as great if not better with them being your role models :)
