That is how many years ago my grandparents said “I do.”
Sixty. Six. Zero. Six ENTIRE decades.
It’s something that continues to blow my mind in ways that I cannot even come close to putting into coherent sentences/thoughts.
They have stuck to their vows…richer or poorer…sickness and health. They have gone through good times and bad times. Wanting to kill each other and wanting to protect each other from the bad things the world can sometimes thrust upon you. Even after sixty years, they still love each other immensely…and truthfully, I’m not sure what they would do without the other.
I hope one day to find someone who I can spend just as much time with, to grow old with and share in a life rich with love, family, friends and adventure like my grandparents…they really are one of a kind.
